Cuba's best-known dissident, blogger Yoani Sanchez, stands at the emigration control at Havana's Jose Marti International Airport February 17, 2013. Sanchez says she plans to make good use of ''my victory'' when she leaves on an 80-day-tour of more than a dozen countries on Sunday. Sanchez, considered Cuba's pioneer in social networking, told Reuters on Thursday that she would visit the headquarters of Google, Twitter and Facebook, and travel to Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, the United States, Spain, Italy, Poland, the Czech Republic and other nations.
