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.



A Deaf woman was arrested and jailed over an unpaid parking ticket, but now she is getting her revenge filing  a federal lawsuit against the city claiming that an interpreter wasn't provided on the spot, according to this article. She was then hospitalized for a few days while her dog at the pound. Will the court order the police to go through sensitivity training or the Deaf woman be referred to an independent living center to learn the importance of paying your parking tickets. Where is her common sense, will the jury fall for it.
