Cuban Provisioning (Or Lack Thereof)


One of the most obvious examples of stark difference between Cuba and most other countries (third world or not) was found at the grocery store.

-

Talk about almost impossible to find what you're looking for unless it includes beans, rice or sweetened condensed milk.

-

If variety is the spice of life, Cuban grocery shopping is barely qualifies as plain white bread.

-

Expect to leave not with what you went in for, but more likely something completely random. Like funky canned peppers or honey or Pringles.

-

Fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and bakery items come from the street, if you know which side street to follow and door to knock on.

-

On the note of fresh fruits, the weekend farmers markets are intense.
