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: Poem

AMERICAN ERA (1947) The wife of ASD superintendent Boatner wrote a poem about Gallaudet that was signed during a program in honor of Thomas Gallaudet, gathering in front of the famous Daniel French's sculpture of our founder with Alice Cogswell, along with the descendants of Thomas Gallaudet among us. He was a little boy like me Many, many years ago- And when a man, He crosses a sea, And learned to sign, And help mankind. Thus bringing joys To deaf girls and boys, 

Many, many years ago.
He was a little boy like me    
Many, many years ago-
And when a man, 
He crosses a sea,
And learned to sign,
And help mankind.
Thus bringing joys
To deaf girls and boys,
Many, many years ago
