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.


Milan, Italy: Aperitivo

At a local bar, during Aperitivo, you can eat, drink, and be merry. Only €7, all you can eat, during their version of "happy hours," similar back in the states. The Italian bars are more generous whereas we Americans only offer a discount, nothing more. You'll notice the differences in our cultures when you traveled across Europe.
