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.


Mail Truck

There is a lot of Deaf postal clerks, mail handlers and carriers at the Milwaukee processing and distribution center downtown and at the airport annex. I've heard lots of stories during my career. Here is the latest one, a mail truck diver being chased everyday by a turkey, instead of a dog in the  western suburbs of Pewaukee,  
I used to read the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and watch WTMJ daily, checking out a video that gone viral. I hope the turkey survive the upcoming Thanksgiving traditions.
