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.

Goldfinger

You remember that movie "Goldfinger" starring Sean Connery as James Bond and wondering what in the title comes from, the author Ian Fleming probably noticed theses new tall skyscrapers going up around him while in London, they were designed by a Hungarian architect, Goldfinger, I thought it was a fictional character, and as a second thought, those skyscrapers aren't made of gold anyway, so why not "Steelfinger." I saw the Aston Martin DB5 sports car at the New York Auto Show as the coliseum.
