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.

Goodbye Chrisopher Robin


You probably already read the Book, "Winnie the Pooh" or seen the Disney animated movie as a child. This film is about its author, A.A. Milne, a pacifist who is suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder (shell shock) seeking refuge in the countryside after WWI where the imagination of his
son, Christopher Robin, inspires him to write a children book that soon became a worldwide bestseller. 
"Goodbye Christopher Robin"  explores how difficult it must been to have a normal childhood when you are a celebrity. 
I give this film, now available on DVD, a thumbs up.
