Cuba Perez, Prado, Paz

  1. 1. Cuba<br />
  2. 2. Geography<br />The capital is Havana.<br />The largest island of the West Indies group.<br />Cuba is also the westernmost—just west of Hispaniola, and 90 miles south of Key West, at the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico. <br />The island is mountainous in the southeast and south-central area (Sierra Maestra). It is flat or rolling elsewhere. Cuba also includes numerous smaller islands, islets, and cays. <br />
  3. 3. Bussiness<br />Their money is the Cuban peso.<br />They export: sugar, nickel, tobacco, shellfish, medical products, citrus fruits, coffee.<br />They import: petroleum, food, machinery, chemicals.<br />
  4. 4. Language<br />Spanish is the official language of Cuba and is spoken throughout the Island. <br />However, once away from the tourist areas it is hard to function without some knowledge of Spanish.<br />Many Cuban business people understand and speak English<br />
  5. 5. Goverment<br />Cuba is constitutionally defined as a &quot;socialist state guided by the principles of José Martí, and the political ideas of Marx, Engels and Lenin.&quot; <br />The present Constitution also ascribes the role of the Communist Party of Cuba to be the &quot;leading force of society and of the state.<br />&quot;Cuba is the only authoritarian country in the Americas, according to the 2008 Democracy Index. <br />
  6. 6. Religion<br />It has historically reflected the island’s diverse cultural elements, although state-approved funding sources. <br />The Roman Catholic Church is made up of the Cuban Catholic Bishops&apos; Conference (COCC), led by Jaime Lucas Ortega y Alamino, Cardinal Archbishop of Havana. <br />It has eleven dioceses, 56 orders of nuns and 24 orders of priests.<br />
  7. 7. Music<br />The music of Cuba is characterized by its variation. There are a lot of music genres that Cuba used like reggae, typical music, rock (just a little) etc. <br />Festivals: The most known festival in Cuba is the festival of Santeria it is celebrated with a lot of typical Cuban dances played with guitars and instruments of percussion that make the music happier and with more beat.<br />Instruments: They used guitars but they didn’t create them, the Spanish men create them. They also used some instruments of percussion like drums. <br />
