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.



One of the reasons why the Deaf didn't get the jobs they applied for is because they don't do well at interviews.
Here is an example:
"Why does the second mouse always gets what he wants?"

Deaf:    "Why are you asking me, it doesn't make any sense?"

Boss:   "Obviously you don't have problem solving skills, we only hire those who can think. The first mouse got trapped, the second got the cheese."
