Man... I feel sorry for Cubans. The embargo is kind of useless at this point, and I think whatever lesson we tried to teach has already been learned and forgotten many times over.

That said, you kind of have to admire the innovation of the Cuban people as they can keep a 1950's-era Chevy running on washing machine parts.

Yeah, but it was a Cohiba that was twice the price of a Cohiba from Germany due to Canada's awesome tobacco sin taxes!

1) As a Washington State resident, I loathe Canada's sin taxes.

2) CSB: A friend of mine recently brought back a bunch of Cubans for me from his trip to Germany. Everyone needs a friend like that.

I prefer the far mellower Romeo y Julieta brand personally.

Cuba has two currencies. They have the local peso, and the convertible peso that is pegged exactly to the dollar. This second peso is used in special stores for foreigners and the elite, which do not allow the use of the local peso. Due to the fact that these stores used to take USD, and the money allowed now is worth exactly the same amount, they are called dollar stores
