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.


Traffic Signal

As we all know, Kissimmee Police are compassionate and understanding and if they puled over anyone over for passing through the red light , the driver have some explaining to do. The officers heard all kinds of excuses but some are legitimate such as unable to see the traffic light signals when you are blinded by the sunrise while driving  east. Parents may be distracted by children having a meltdown. Elderly with a medical condition, etc. This gives  the officer discretion  to issue a ticket, warning, or to forgive, reminding us to drive carefully. The Kissimmee  police department job is to protect and serve us by going after those who who deliberately ignore the law and disregard public safety, not those law abiding citizens that who unintended passed a red light. Red light camera controversy can ruin Kissimmee reputation among tourists here in the most popular destination in America. I think that Thomas Jefferson would agreed with me that the red light cameras are unconstitutional. (Osceola News-Gazette)
