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.



The original flag salute, was created by Francis Bellamy, a Christian Socialist who wrote the original "Pledge of Allegiance," without the "under God," inclusion which, according to famous comedian Red Skelton, wasn't added until after both Hawaii and Alaska was admitted to the union . The Bellamy flag salute became controversial when the Nazis adopted it during WWII. Congress then amended the Flag Code.
