Average temperature is 26-28 degrees Celsius (not including humidity).
In the summer, Cuba has very intense heat, but in Winter it is like summer in Toronto.
Cuba has a hurricane season which ranges from June through November.
That means that there is no class system.

Cuban Cuisine is a mix of Taino, Spanish, African, and Caribbean food. (Taino is a culture that is in South America)
Some Cuban recipes use the same techniques as Spanish and African food, but have a flavor of the Caribbean in them.
An industry is the manufacturing of goods and services in an economy.
Cuban industries include nickel/cobalt, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, cement, and sugar.
Cuba is known for its tobacco farms.
In Cuba, there are no NATIVE traditions, because Spaniards went to Cuba, and they mixed with the native Cubans. Then later, black slaves went to Cuba from Africa and mixed with the "Spanish-Cubans". In result, there is a mix of traditions. In Cuba, New Years Eve is a VERY big thing. They have a lot of shows and parades.
Cuba also has a MIX of religions, but the most common religion is Christian ism.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
+Snacks and Drinks
Breakfast: Lots of eggs are served with rice or toast. Toast was most often served with marmalade or jam, as butter can be hard to find because Cubans cannot afford it. Some mornings rice and black beans would be served. Fruit is often served with breakfast. Oranges and bananas are the fruit that is served with breakfast. Fruit Juice also is what you would drink with breakfast
Lunch: A typical cold lunch is a piece of cooked ham on a roll. Lunches are often warm, and common dishes are rice and beans, black bean soup, and tamales. Lunch is most often eaten on the fly, much as it is here. You would drink soft drinks or water with your lunch.
Dinner: Dinner is the main meal, just like here. Dinner would consist of a lot of different vegetables. Green beans, corn, black beans, chicken, and white rice would be a general dinner. You would normally have water with your dinner, but the adults can have beer with their dinner.
Deserts: Sweetened fruit, fried dough sprinkled with sugar or cinnamon sugar (churros), flan, and custards made with fruit.
