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.


ASD: Football

American Era (1949) Our football team had a poor season this year with six losesand no victories. In addition our brilliant record of straight victories over some schools for the deaf on our field were shattered when the New Jersey School for the Deaf boys being our guests humiliated us last month.
formation was given to the boys for the first time and was enjoyed by them after they learned the ideas of using deception and timing. Throughout the season much substitution was made in order to give each boy on the squad the profit of sportsmanship, cooperation and experience, and no serious injuries resulted.
All but Donald Wetzel and Jack Culligan  will return next year and they aresure that they will do better with the new "T" formation.

NOTE:  Buster, my Deaf brother, is on the ASD football team.
