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.


"Lois Of Cave Spring"

Lois was so disoriented that she almost lost her bearings in the dark. As she struggled to open her eyes, she tried to figure out exactly what had scared her so. She thought: "Was my guardian angle trying to warn me by instilling a strange dream? Or worst yet by some odd coincidence, was someone in the house?"
Frozen in position, Lois tried to analyze her silly notions. Thankful that the hallway night-light also illuminated the bedroom, she slowly and carefully began to study each shadowy shape in her room......

Deaf Anthology Commentary:

I bet you all curious about the rest of the story, it's frightening enough already, perhaps it's a ghost in her bedroom but I won't know unless I order and read her book. There are a lot of good Deaf authors out there, they just haven't been discovered yet. Lois is a newcomer to the publishing world even though her book is a collection of stories over the years.

"Lois of Cave Spring" is now available online, just click on the title to transfer to her website.
