a Cuban might be able to buy a Chevy Volt, or a Whopper with cheese or a new window from Home Depot. Nothing succeeds like success. I think it would be a marvelous cruising destination
The first item they would buy from Home Depot would be screens for their windows. Other items hard to find in Cuba include walking shoes,shaving razors,cigarette lighters, underware, bras, tampons or sanitary napkins, socks, jeans, sunglasses, medicine, toothpaste, dental floss, rain jackets, quality tools, baby items.
I bought $20 of items from Key West
Salvation Army and had to pay Cuban Customs
duty ($280.00), before I could give them to a Cuban friend.
