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.

Camp Aspen Crisis

IRS tax lien against Camp Aspen for the Deaf in Colorado was a major factor in its decision to shut down. Ryan Commerson hopes it will be temporarily so they can deal with various issues confronting them, such as state regulations, cabin rentals, parents non-payments, staff turnovers and forest fires, etc.
It's tough operating a high adventure camp that challenge generations of Deaf children. It'll take time to rethink its mission, resolve problems and return stronger than ever. Deaf Anthology, without doubts, is confidence that its leadership will take the camp to the next level, with a workable approach. There will be stumbling blocks along the way, and we will overcome them, it's now time that the Deaf community step in to help, and lining up corporations and foundations support its recovery to get back on the beaten trails.
