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.


Madam Secretary

I think it'll be interesting to watch the premiere episode of Madam Secretary next Sunday night when Elizabeth McCord, possibly thinking about running for the White House, seeks consultation from three former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton, General Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright. I think she'll stay put as our nation is losing its prestige in the world , and there  is no one more qualified to handle these crises.
