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.



I am looking forward to a new movie,"42," the Jackie Robinson story, who broke the racial barrier to become the first black to play in the major leagues for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
I often vacation at "Dodgertown," the original spring training facility in Vero Beach, Florida. The last game I watch is when Tom Lasorda was the manager, sometimes selling wines.
Jackie lives in my hometown in Connecticut, got problems of his own, like any parents, dealing with their kids involved in drugs, nevertheless, his son was killed in an automobile accident.
