Things are changing. It's a local economy. In other places people don't know their neighbors. They don't know their names. People don't say 'hello' to each other. Not here.

The Cuban agricultural, conventional, 'Green Revolution' system never was able to feed the people. It had high yields, but was oriented to plantation agriculture. We exported citrus, tobacco, sugar cane and we imported the basic things. So the system, even in the good times, never fulfilled people's basic needs.

Before, Cubans didn't eat that many vegetables. Rice and beans and pork meat was the basic diet. At some point necessity taught them, and now they demand [vegetables].

There are infinite small solutions. Crises or changes or problems can trigger many of these things which are basically adaptive. We are adapting.
