Trip to Holguin, Cuba

People in Cuba get a salary of 13 pesos a month which is 24 convertible pesos per each peso which is 312 convertible pesos a month. That covers basic needs like groceries such as fruits and veggies, but nothing extraordinary like beer and chocolate and pop. One can of beer or pop is 1 peso or 24 convertible pesos which is a ” once in a while ” treat for them. Almost everyone in Cuba does something on the side in order to feed their family or rise above poverty. Most cuban side jobs include, taxi drivers, making or selling arts and crafts, horses, farming, dancing,etc.
