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.



A ten year Chicago Deaf boy was found dead earlier this morning after his mother became suspicious when he didn't show up for breakfast, late to catch the school bus, found him lynched in his bedroom. Police discovered a suicide note left behind, indicating he was somewhat depressed after having a cochlear-implant (CI) recently despite his protest. The press released excerpts that note; "My dream of playing with the Cubs, dashed when the local Little League wouldn't accept me on the team because of the liability issue."
