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.



We sometimes need a break from our stressful lives, meeting job deadlines, family problems, financial worries, and college exams, etc.I don't meant taking a vacation, that's also stressful enough.
We all need a timeout to do absolutely nothing, not even thinking, setting your mind free, Niksen is popular in the Netherlands among the Dutch, now I know why the Scandinavians lives longer than the rest of us.
