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.


Auto Repairs

My Deaf friend complains about his auto repair bill, he bought his vehicle to shop to check on that clunky noise that he felt when going around the corner, the mechanic took it out for a test drive and immediately found the cause without using electronic dialogistic equipment, advising him to remove the bowling ball from his trunk.
Once, I thought something wrong, feeling the vibrations, bought it to shop to be told there is nothing wrong, just radio static, so I turned it off, feeling embarrassed. 
A reputable mechanic wouldn't charge you, not take advantage of you.
You can't trust anyone nowadays!
