Cuban ballet dancers who recently defected from their troupe in Mexico and now live in Miami are “amazed at how many foods come canned and can be easily heated up in a microwave,” according to the Associated Press.

8. Studebaker, DeSoto, Willys and Nash are out of the automobile business
7. America’s most famous Cuban? Mark Cuban
6. Fidel is a sofa bed mogul and Che sells t-shirts
