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.


Idaho Falls Mural

Idaho Falls on Deaf Ears literally. Kelly Sheridan didn't "ask" the Deaf, didn't "understand" the Deaf, didn't "listen" the Deaf, and yet expects the Deaf to "look" at her uncomprehensive mural in the ghetto. Kelly Sheridan shown no respect of our Deaf culture taking artistic liberties of our ASL. ACLU commissioned the project, the city selects an ignorant artist, and now we are stuck in  this controversial issue that needs to be dealt with immediately. Deaf should first be appointed on a committee that reviews all proposal  submitted by Deaf artists and select one to redo the mural.
