Cuba By Lucy Greenup

You could say that Cuba is 'behind the times'

Cuba is known to have old cars; here's why

The stuck-in-time feeling Cuba has is the result of a four-decade-long grudge the country’s leader, Fidel Castro (who resently died), held against the United States.

Fidel Castro had placed a ban on foreign vehicle imports, making it almost impossible to buy a brand-new forigen cars. Also it is hard to get parts for the cars they have there now.

In Cuba they have food ration cards. They get small amounts of rice, potatoes, bread, eggs, and very small amounts of meat.
They have two currencies. The Cuban pesos (right) and the Cuban convertible pesos (left), only the residents can use the non-convertible ones. All tourist must use the convertible pesos.
