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.



A Deaf actor may be in an upcoming episode of "What Would You Do?" The series will deal with people reaction when a Deaf peddler approaches people with a manual alphabet card asking for money. This probably will take place at the Los Angeles (LAX) airport terminal. I think this is an interesting concept, but what they didn't expect a confrontation when Deaf travelers spotted them. I hope they accepted my submission, perhaps next season.
