Emergence of a real estate market in Cuba

Cuba is changing. Rules are being relaxed. Small business sprout on the streets of busy cities. Thousands of former government employees have joined the ranks of the self-employed. In Havana's Parque Prado, an emerging real estate market tests the waters of the regime's tolerance. Home owners advertise their properties on handwritten signs. Buyers stroll by while keeping an eye to the two state policemen watching at the corner.
