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.


Texas Deaf Employment

Texas Department of Corrections is an  Equal Opportunity Employer
    In attempt to diversified its workforce,  Texas are now hiring those Deaf laid off during the recession to be license plate press operators within its prison system. No applications are required for these positions, just go out and commit a crime. Once you receives a felony conviction, you'll be handcuffed then transported to your job site, undergo fingerprinting, a mug shots, given an orange uniform and a cell. An ASL interpreter is available at all training session. Salary is below federal minimum wages, minus restitution, just enough to purchase a pack of cigarette at the prison commissary to trade for protection from the gangs on your block.
