n.— «The Cuban peso (one dollar is presently worth 26 Cuban pesos at a currency exchange office) is still used in agricultural markets and stores that deal in Cuban pesos, which have very little in stock and can hardly compete with establishments known as “choppies,” from the English word shopping, which accept only dollars.» —“Cuba to Postpone 10 Percent Tax on Dollar-Peso Exchanges” Nov. 4, 2004.
