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.


Handicapped Parking

One thing I can't figure out is why some Deaf steal handicapped parking spaces, ignoring the posted signs, taking the risks of being ticketed or towed away. We often get away with it, but this guy got caught on video that went viral, to the amusement of bystanders clicking away with their smartphones. Motorcyclist cop handled the situation well, doing his job. Think twice, avoid being humiliated.
