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.


NYT: "Listening Project"

Since it was mentioned in a pro CI opinion piece in the New York Times, so Deaf Anthology going to check out their "Listening Project" documentary but first here is the trailer.

 A clever ploy, using deaf adolescent, to think themselves as normal, trying to convince us that all is well with the latest technological propaganda. It ain't so, where is Michael Moore, or any Deaf film directors when we need them to produce our counter viewpoint, letting the world know that there is a Deaf Culture that exist and ASL is our primary language. However, we were not able to obtain the film embedded into this post, so check it out at your local independent theatre  and be open-minded when expressing your opinions on the controversial subject, and be ready to debate defending your position on this issue
