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" beggar

Las Vegas police arrested a homeless man after receiving several complaints of impersonated a "deaf" beggar, actually he's a laid off VRS interpreter, struggling with alcoholism. During questioning, he admitted that his Deaf parents overstayed their visas and left him behind, after being deported back to Honduras . ICE agents took him to the detention center, awaiting a hearing before an immigration judge to consider his asylum request, but will nevertheless be denied due to his lengthy rap sheet.
