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.



Parents should encourage their Deaf children to read, so I recommend the "Dairy of the Wimpy Kid" series, with a new book, "Meltdown," now available at your local bookstores.The publisher is promoting the new book with its "Meltdown Truck Tour" stopping at various places across the country and around the world, maybe your opportunity to meet the author, Jeff Kinney, but first check its schedule in their Wimpy Kid website. It's possible that they can stop at a Deaf school if Deaf children performed a play based on the book, but their teachers and administrators have to work it out with the publishers to make it happen.
