La cola pal Granma

I have no idea why these old people decide to stand everyday in slow lines to get the Granma, the official newspaper. It's so boring I wouldn't read it if they pay me.

I know some of them resell it, but not all of them.

I can only think of one reason: they have nothing else to do. They are stuck in customs and they have to hold on to something when everything else collapses.

I don't know. I don't understand. But something tells me there is a social phenomena in this daily activity.

Havana, Cuba.
