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.



SunRail is a new train that allows commuters from outlying suburbs to avoid traffic getting to and from work downtown Orlando much most people are complaining that's not enough as we want to enjoy nightlife, attend a Magic basketball game, theatres and plays, and perhaps a soccer game on weekends. It's not about work, we want to play too, not missing out any exciting events happening here in Florida. I'm somewhat disappointed that the state rejected federal funding for high-speed rails, and no wonder the Japanese and European tourists thinks that our infrastructures are inferior to theirs. They once discuss the possibility of a maglev train from the airport to the Disney theme parks and the Orange County Convention Center but all the bickering among us are preventing our city being the best in the nation in terms of public transportation.
