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.



The Morse Museum in Winter Park, Florida got the largest collections of Tiffany stuff. My Deaf brother bought a Tiffany lamp.  I like the chapel set which was originally at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. Lots of artworks on display, I'm familiar with those of Norman Rockwell that covers vintage magazines. This Tiffany lamp was at the 1901 world's fair in Buffalo, New York where President William McKinley was assassinated.
