HAVANA, CUBA - JANUARY 24: Under a poster of former Cuban President Fidel Castro, a woman buys pork in an open air market in the Jesus Maria neighborhood of Habana Vieja January 24, 2015 in Havana, Cuba. After the Cuban government expanded the list of accepted private small businesses between 2010 and 2012, about 1 million people, 20 percent of the Cuban workforce, can now be classified as wholly in the private sector. Diplomats from the United States and Cuba held historic talks this week that could restore diplomatic ties and mark the end of more than 50 years of of Cold War-era hostility between the two countries.
