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.


Seen & Heard

CBC: Canada has its own Deaf Theatre here in Montreal, in the French speaking province of Quebec, so I can imagine trying to follow the play when both Langue de Signes Québécoise (LSQ) and American Sign Language (ASL) are combined. "Seen & Heard" is somewhat an experimental project putting together a cast of Deaf and hearing people off the streets, meaning those without any theatrical experiences and letting them perform a simple well-known story "Little Mermaid." I remember that statue when I tour Denmark, visiting their Deaf school across the railroad tracks. 
The Seeing Voices Montreal is the production company, taking its inspirations from our American counterpart Deaf West.
