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.



Police are raiding the Deaf clubs across the Deep South, especially here in the Heart of the Dixie, confiscating evidences of widespread gambling activities among the Deaf, after receiving an anonymous tip from a disgruntled Deaf member who lost last month jackpot, the biggest ever. Deaf officials were taken into custody, assets seized, and their non-profits status revoked. Additional charges are expected, such as selling alcohol on the premise without a license, building code violations, etc. A spokesman for the Governor's Task Force on Gambling stated "gambling in any form is illegal and the Deaf thought they can get away with it, they were wrong.
