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.


Dog & God

Mary Whittaker, the Deaf minister in the Church of Scotland got a lot of attention in the British press lately as everyone are curious about her dog, Scott, that stole the spotlight. Deaf people love their dogs more than their God. Mary hopes that her Deaf congregation focus on the cross, not on Scott, and grow in faith. I'll tithe a can of dog food to fight hunger.
