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.



It's been confirmed that a Deaf Floridian has the winning Powerball ticket that was bought at a local gas station. In an ASL interpreted statement to the media: "It's a thrill to hit the jackpot, until I realized that I will lose my monthly SSI checks, food stamps, Medicaid coverage, and the subsidized HUD apartment but after thinking about it overnight, I decided not to come forward to claim the prizebecause the government been taking good care of me, so I prefer to enjoy life without any responsibilities!"
