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.



Longaberger corporate headquarters in Ohio can't be missed when passing by, as it's a giant basket which they are known for. I assume it got to be a great place to work, having that pride creating a product that is made in America. Unfortunately its owner who started it all passed away, and the recession hits hard, bickering in management led to its downfall, forced to laid off everyone, file for bankruptcy and go out of business.
