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.

Interpreter Agency

An interpreter service firm decided to take actions to improve the skills of their interpreters it hires, having a RID certificate just isn't enough, and trying to get Deaf consumers to fill out its survey is too much of a hassle and time-consuming. After brainstorming, they came up with solution, requiring all interpreters to wear a t-shirt with the "How Am I Interpreting...Dial 555-5ASL" imprinted on the back. Service has since improved.
