I tried 'revolucion' because it sounded Communist and something that would be included in the Cuban square name, and I turned out to be correct.

Wrote Batistuta and Bay of Pig :x

Also, the Party's name is not Communists but PCC. Thats very misleading because there are several different communist schools pushed under one word.

Sugar isn't a plant, just an extract. I was mildly and pleasantly surprised when it didn't accept it on its own though.

Learn something new every day. Have always associated "Mojito" with Puerto Rico and "Cuba Libre" (Rum and Coca Cola) with Cuba.

I read cocktail and rum and tried Cuba Libre. Only then I read the rest. Never knew Mojito originated in Cuba either.

If the hint for the nightclub had been "Drinks are free", I would have stood a better chance of getting it ;-)

Exactly. As we all know, socialism is just a short transition period. Soon the era of communism will begin in which money will no longer be necessary. Probably any day now.

Jose Marti warrants a question. He is a monumental figure in Cuban history, and his inclusion would encourage those who don't know him to look him up.

It's funny what's deemed worth remembering. At JFK's presidential library, there's a room devoted to the Cuban Missile Crisis, and three little letter-sized notes on the Bay of Pigs. I wonder why.

Maybe add Mexican as an alternative to question #5? I know it is called the Gulf of Mexico, but the way the question is phrased made me think to type Mexican Gulf rather than Gulf of Mexico.

But that's the thing - if you look at a map, anything "north of Havana" is probably not in Cuba...

Anybody that still don't comprehend that some events in history have been faked/invented (like the top army in the world unable to invade a third world country) should have his head checked (and go get another booster while you're at it).

Very difficult quiz, I only got 10/22, very surprised the average score is so high.
