In this week's feature story, you can read all about Revolico. The website -- a Craigslist for Cuba -- is changing the way Cubans do business in the Caribbean communist stronghold by bringing the nation's rampant black market online for the world to see.
Cuba's socialist constitution forbids pretty much all private enterprise, but you can find anything and everything for sale on Revolico: computers, DVDs, diapers, Chinese lessons, massages, bikes, tennis shoes. It's a capitalist Valhalla and an obvious crack in Fidel Castro's grip.
It's also a great place to see some ridiculous rides. In Cuba, with a few exceptions, only cars made before 1960 are allowed. The island is choked with barely running "Yank tanks" -- and a bunch are for sale on Revolico.
