Cuba: So what are stateside Cubanos bitching about anyway?

More than 40% of postal parcels lost in Cuba

HAVANA, July (David Josué / - More than 40% of the postal parcels mailed this year have never reached their destination, according to a recent study.

Among the missing: a refrigerator, a pair of pants, a cellular phone, a fan. The street name for those who still dare use the Cuban post office's parcel post service: postal fools.

Most people here are convinced the merchandise is simply stolen in transit, and in spite of the occasional investigations and firings, the parcels keep getting lost. Complaints are plentiful, but seldom if ever afford satisfaction to the complainant.
