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.


"The Chew"

Yesterday, I went to the taping of  "The Chew" at Epcot. They bought in their entire production crew here from New York this week, first time ever outside the studio. We're having a great time! Tickets were available online, but gone within minutes. I contacted ABC to request an ASL interpreter on the set. You also get both a complimentary parking pass and ticket from Disney, so you can remain in the theme park afterwards. It was the last taping of the week, so basically you can expect the highlights, cooking demonstrations, a discussion about food allergy, and a few helpful tips. We the studio audience get to taste the sliders, which was overall voted the best burgers. I thought it was funny that everyone can hear the birds chirping at the microphones hanging above the stage. Everyone receives a "Mickey Mouse" book after the taping.
