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.

Austin Deaf Santa

You better watch out, you better not cry, 'cause Santa is coming to town. Today the Deaf Santa at an Austin mall in Texas, communicating in ASL with Deaf children who are begging that their names be taken off the naughty list. Deaf boys wants a Daisy BB rifles and a NRA membership. Deaf girls wants that cute Deaf boy that sat on Santa's lap previously, probably will get  dresses from a French designer and a lifetime subscription to Elle magazine.
