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.


Brian Banks

Brian Banks is a college football player falsely accused of rape, plea no contest no knowing that it meant that, in the eyes of the law, he's just as guilty, sentenced to prison when he thought he would get off on probation, putting on hold his dream of ever playing in the NFL. He's innocent, should be on the field, not behind bars, fighting injustice. A lawyer is his quarterback and the judge is the referee. I give this film a thumb-up, now available on DVD at the local Redbox.
