>Friday is the day.

>Bought the ticket.  Bit nervous.  Very excited.  Don’t plan on using my computer there.  Internet is very expensive and rare.

So far I know:
-Heath care is free
-College, heck all education is free
-Maternity is a year long, daycare is free
-Cows are gov’t controlled, beef is sold in only gov’t stores/restaurants
-They used to eat grapefruit steaks during their economic crisis of the mid-90’s
-No such thing as mortgages.  Can’t sell your house for profit, only trade it for one equal in size to the one you already own
-Little tax exists
-Everyone uses gov’t subsidized food stamps, believe it’s weekly rations
-The cars are called ‘yank tanks’ all very old model cars

And that’s just from reading a few pages in a guide book!  Going now to change dollars to euros for better exchange rate when I get there.  They’re not fond on the USD, can’t imagine why!

Wanted to know…..would you like to know anything about the country?
