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.


PS4: Quiet Man

The Quiet Man. a new PS4 videogame just released a few days ago contains a deaf character, Dane, involved in drama, nothing new here. Anyway, it's interesting tp note it got negative reviews from critics, of course,  you don't expect these hearing to understand what's going on when there is no dialog to follow along with the absence of sounds, and don't even bother to click the CC icon, it ain't to do you any good. I want feedback from Deaf gamers out there.
