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.

Imagine a Deaf child having an overprotective single father who wouldn't even let you go outside to play trying to keep you away from the oppressive world we live in. All that changes when a new kid moved into the neighborhood in this new Malaysia short film. The Deaf child just want to be normal like the rest of us, attending a Deaf school to be with his peers.
