Fun fact: even though we've been taking classes at the conservatory for two months already, we just signed the "contracts" that officially sign us up and stipulate payment, etc.
Apparently there is a Cuban company or office called Paradíso that is the middleman between the conservatory and foreigners who want to take classes.
I believe we've been enrolled at the school legitimately, but I still think it's funny that it took them more than two whole months to process us. Cuban bureaucracy at its finest.
Have I shared the one cuban joke that I've learned? It's the oldest one out there, and for good reason:
They pretend to pay us.
We pretend to work.
