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.


Richard Jewell

Clint Eastwood's Richard Jewell is another movie I'm looking forward, it's a story about a security guard that found a suspicious backpack at Centennial Park during the Atlanta Olympics and clearing the area, saving untold lives, being a hero then becoming a terrorist suspect. Just like Brian Banks in my previous blog, with the media tearing him apart, undergoing hours of FBI questionings, and fighting the same injustice. There is a new crop of films worthy of Oscar nominations this season.
Films: Midway (OC)
I'm exercising my rights, per ADA, to see all films in the subtitled ()C) format at the local theater.
