Although Americans tourists are banned from entering the country, I went under the journalism category.
It's only an hour flight, Cuban visa can be bought during check-in at the airline counter before departure, just don't forget your passport. I exchanged dollars into their convertible  (CUC) pesos upon arrival. I stayed at an hostel next to the baseball stadium. I focused on videotaping their culture alone rather than being somewhat biased traveling group with their hectic schedule. One day took a Soviet era Lada taxi to outskirts of Havana to visit a Deaf school. They asked me what we Deaf Americans do with our obsolete TTY as we are using VP nowadays, hopefully some organizations will donate those equipment. I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.



A Deaf couple, unable to conceived a child of their own, were excited when a Deaf newborn is available for adoption, they rushed to the hospital to bring him home but became that their Deaf child was already cochlear-implanted (CI) without their knowledge. The hospital spokesman refuses to make a comment citing its privacy policy. However, an administrator admitted that it's standard procedure to cochlear-implanted (CI) every Deaf newborn which is now just as common as circumcision. A federal judge granted temporary injunction, allowing state legislators to scheduled a hearing on this controversial issue. The Deaf parents are planning a civil lawsuit against the hospital.
