Jesse, you might want to read this older thread over again, particularly what shows up as Page 2 on my computer (don't know if it will be the same on yours).

I've printed off a copy of it, for my reference.


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

two Cuban boats are at the BoatYard. The handmade design is remarkable, and traveling across the open ocean packed with refugees is an amazing and dangerous feat.

One is made with aluminum sheets and the other is plywood:

Elbert, what a great find and what a brave young woman: Generation Y!
Marty, I never saw a "Cuban escape boat" until I was in SP. Amazing how the "boats" make it. I wonder how many don't make it and we will never know?

Computers go on sale to general public in Cuba for 1st time

1 hour ago

HAVANA (AP) Cubans are getting wired. Computers went on sale to the general public on the communist island on Friday and potential consumers were lining up outside store windows to gawk and consider buying.

President Raul Castro's government had authorized the sale of personal computers to average Cubans more than a month ago, but they were not made available until Friday.

Computer sales are the latest of a series of measures Castro has taken to make life easier for ordinary Cubans.

The new government also has erased bans on cell phones and luxury hotel room rentals, and has made it easier for state workers to own homes they once rented as part of their jobs. It also is letting more private farmers and cooperatives take a crack at putting fallow government land to better use.

Lord Almighty, could they be swinging a little bit more to capitalism? Hmmmm, what would the advantage be?

You can buy a cel phone or a personal computer or own your own home, but you make $2.50 a day........hummmmmm. Real freedom is money that will buy these things.
I'm happy Raul is changing but these things are just cosmetic for PR purposes.
I'm free to spend the weekend in the south of France,
just can't afford the ticket, so am I really free to do it.
Gosh suddenly I feel oppressed
