The top question that I respond to regarding Cuba

As recently as Tuesday of this week, I mentioned to an acquaintance that I recently returned from a trip to Cuba. The questions that the individual uttered were almost expected by that point:

1. So how was it?

2. What was the food like?

I have heard these questions, which, of course, I enjoy responding to, in the same order so many times before.

Rather than just describing the food when responding to the second question, the conversation becomes an opportunity to also discuss U.S.-Cuban trade in food products.
