Some people are so poor that all they have is only money.
Money, money, money. I feel like I'm a walking cash point here in Cuba. The people are poor, a normal salary is at about 20-30 Dollars per month. But the Cubans get paid in a different currency and they pay a lot less for literally everything. As tourist, you pay about 10-15 Dollars for a dinner. A local couldn't spend the half of all the money he gets per month for only one meal... In general, the prices are crazy here. If you want to buy a house, you have to invest 20.000 Dollars. But imagine that a car (one of the cool old cars) costs 50.000! Isn't that crazy?! My perception is that, as in so many other places too, the poor people seem to be happier and more satisfied than rich ones. The energy that flows in this country on the streets - people dancing and laughing and having a good time - all this is very unique for Cuba. I can feel how much this energy flows also inside me, I'm charging my batteries which will be enough for the whole next year!
