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.


Legal Aid Society

Legal Aid Society will be discussing two major issues, housing discrimination and advanced directives so I encourages the Deaf Floridians to attend as we can benefit from this upcoming workshop in the fall, it's also an opportunity to socialize, making new friends. I know that Palm Beach got a great, strong Deaf community down there and the only obstacle I face is that is live within the state far. far away.
