3:28 p.m. ET Dispatch from Havana:

While Cuba is still a communist country, since Raul Castro took power from his brother Fidel in 2006, there have been economic changes. Some small businesses are now allowed - indeed, there's a list of 189 official trades you can be licensed for, which includes working as a clown. As ridiculous as that may sound, these pockets of private enterprise have improved the lives of people here, supplementing their meager official salaries.

Everywhere you go, you see new little shops and storefronts, and private restaurants wedged between the state-sponsored cafeteria. One of our favorites? This open-air butcher shop, complete with a sign showing an angry pig having its head chopped off.  - Katie Hinman

8:35 a.m. ET: TRAYVON MARTIN CASE: Lead prosecutor and veteran State Attorney Angela Corey tells ABC News that convicting Trayvon Martin's killer won't be easy because of Florida's "stand-your-ground" law.

"The stand-your-ground law is one portion of justifiable use of deadly force," Corey said. "And what that means is that the state must go forward and be able to prove it's case beyond a reasonable doubt… So it makes the case in general more difficult than a normal criminal case."
