I just read on a website ( http://www.havana-guide.com/lifeinhavana.html ) that Cubans receive ration books.  It didn’t give specifics on what they are for.  Is this something that is comparable to food stamps in the U.S. and dependent upon income or is it universal?  Actually, the site made it look a bit bleak.  It sounds like the living is not very expensive, but still a bit on the bleak side economically.
