On November 25, 2016 when Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz passed away, some people had understood that Cuba’s autonomous regime was on its last legs and the economy, after the old support from the erstwhile USSR and the recent support from Hugo Chávez, was hitted by the lack of tourism during the Covid period. So it got to the point where the most valuable commodity, cigars, were sold to the Chinese.
But we will never see them on sale in Jumbo along with the other Chinese stuff that most of us buy at very affordable prices.
Instead prices have shot up quite socialistically!
