Considering that the average Cuban salary is about $20 a *minrh*...I wonder how they managed to save the money to buy these items, without saving every cent they’ve earned and living off Govt subsidies. Even still, I’ve gotten a look at what the Cuban Govt is charging for these items, and they are priced at about 3 times what one would pay for them in a free country.

You've heard of Miami? They get the money via remittances from family members there. Although Bush restricted remittances a couple of years ago, so they can only go to the sender's immediate family in Cuba.
