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.


Randy Dunham

It takes skills to paint a house but you need talents to paint on a canvas and Deaf artist Randy Dunham got them both. You start with a vision, develop a plan, selecting your paintbrushes and colors and time-frame to finish the project in both cases. Randy goes great lengths to develop this instructional video. Deaf may not realize how much work is involved in painting a house.


This NTID video is a biography of Randy Dunham, getting to know him as an individual  being introduced to his arts.


You can now go on ebay to bid for his arts. We need to support  our Deaf artists. I also want to point out that various venues such  as art museums allows temporary exhibitions. Here in  Orlando, the United Arts provides grants to individuals and organizations. It's a great idea to applied locally to sponsor  Deaf artists to set up a gallery and reception in your hometown.
