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.

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
