Money: Due to the U.S. trade embargo, Americans could not use any U.S. credit or debit cards in Cuba. That means, get yourself a good money belt and bring cash. When you arrive, you’ll have to go to an official money exchange, called a CADECA, and buy Cuban pesos. They are outside the Havana airport. You must buy Cuban convertible pesos, known as CUCs (pronounced “kooks”). They are tied to the U.S. dollar, so worth $1 each. However, here’s the catch: You must pay a 10 percent penalty for using American dollars, plus the exchange commission. When we went, we paid $100 and got back $87 in return.
Speaking of getting away, we knew that even lovers need a holiday, far away from each other, A vacation was all we ever wanted, We knew that if we took a holiday, some time to celebrate, just one day out of life, it would be so nice, And if you brought your good times and your laughter too, we were gonna celebrate and party with you, In fact, we fought for slippers, women leg warmers, pom pom slippers, alpaca wool socks, room shoes, knitted slippers, purple ballets, furry slipper so our right to party, And that’s why our motto was, “Let’s dance.” We just wanted to dance with somebody, If we had the chance, we would have asked the world to dance, We had to cut loose, footloose, put on our red shoes and dance the blues, We hung in a buffalo stance every time we danced, But if your friends didn’t dance, they were no friends of ours, Sometimes we were just dancing in the dark, or even dancing with ourselves, And then we’d dance into the fire, to fatal sounds of broken dreams..
