Want a Free Trip to Cuba?

One small catch. You need to move to Venezuela. However, I hear the prospects for the country are looking good and who doesn't like rain forests? I sure do. From a Wall Street Journal article focusing on the effect of falling oil prices comes this tidbit (subscription required).
So far, falling oil prices haven't dented Mr. Chávez's spending habits. Just last week, he announced a program to send 100,000 poor Venezuelans each year to vacation in Cuba. He also recently offered the army's services to build a road in Nicaragua at a projected cost of $350 million.
