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.


Race Tracks

If PETA has its way, they will banned both horse and greyhound racing but the folks at the Kentucky Derby and other race tracks around the country have a backup plan in place, which may proven to be more popular. I idea was tested recently in Auburn, Washington with tremendous successes.

Deaf Politics Today: Election Security

Why should the Russians try to hack our Presidential elections, what do they hope to gain from it. They will be better off hiring a lobbyist on their behalf or making a foreign contribution to their corrupt candidates, and also they can establish a political action committee to raise funds. We should worry about those mischievous raccoons as they are most likely to disrupt our elections than our enemies as we got cyber-security system in place to protect our nation. Raccoons are known to cause blackouts chewing on the electrical grids and hopefully it doesn't happen during the primaries or election day.  Secret Service agents once caught a raccoon stealing Jelly Beans from the Oval Office during the Reagan administration, Just recently here in Florida a raccoon got stuck in a vending machine, fattening himself, eating junk food.
