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.


Deaf Crows

Mustafa Alabssi is a Deaf Syrian refugee settling down in Canada hoping to be an actor will get his shot at stardom performing with the Deaf Crows   troupe in their Apple Time debut at the Globe Theatre's Sandbox Series  beginning next February. I think it's great being on stage showcasing our God given talents. 

I encourages Deaf youths to tryout at their local theatre to test the waters to see if that's something you want to do the rest of your life, going to auditions after auditions, spreading out into films, whatever roles available, in this competitive market, and it'll be a matter of time before getting your star on the sidewalk in Hollywood.
