Cuba marked the 50th anniversary of its revolution on New Year's Day. Though many Cubans are proud of their education and health care systems, they're also fed up with economic hardship.

In Cuba, only two forms of free enterprise are allowed: you can rent a room in your house; and you can have a small restaurant on your terrace.
