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.


ASL Across America

I remember participating in the "HANDS ACROSS AMERICA" event about thirty years when over six millions Americans formed a human chain across America, from New York to California, holding hands for 15 minutes while singing Michael Jackson's "We Are The World" song, raising several We raised millions It's an awareness camp iles, creating awareness, raising funds to support the hunger and the homeless.  Is it possible for us Deafies to do a similar feat, having our own "ASL Across America?"
