Just outside of a Polyclinic in Havana.
Inside the Polyclinic
Our trip to Cuba was not a typical vacation. Americans are only allowed to go to Cuba for special reasons such as having family in Cuba, if your are a journalist, or if you go through special outlets that provide people to people interactions with everyday Cubans. Here we visited a Polyclinic where we got to meet with the doctors and discuss Cuban Health care with professionals.
They let us observe their practice.
…very closely. Here a man is getting his teeth checked.
Here we are talking about Cuban Healthcare.
Here is a typical Cuban Market.
On this day our task was to experience what it is like to shop for a family of five on a Cuban salary. Here you see a Cuban ration card.
The monthly Cuban wage is 400 pesos.
We were given 50 pesos to shop for one meal for a Cuban family.
We paid more than 20 times the amount for rice then a the average Cuban family is allowed.
Until next time, Peace & Love, Jennifer
