Lost in translation

Cuba’s Carlos III stores have a Canadian website where you can buy items and have them delivered to someone in Cuba. A “mattress of jetties” (ouch!) can be yours for $275.56 Canadian. I guess colchon de muelles, whatever that is, loses something in translation. Speaking of which, alongside is a poor photo taken at the buffet table in a Cuban hotel, right above a chafing dish of poached eggs. If the eggs were “embezzled” for real, wouldn’t they have gone out of the hotel instead of in?
