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.


Contemporary Affairs

The Contemporary Affairs high school teacher at Rippowam requires us all to study the Sundays' New York Times, but it's too thick as ain't got the time to read it all, so I bought the thinner Daily News which is full of pictures and takes only a few minutes to read, just enough information to pass a quiz given every Wednesdays.  
Deaf Anthology encourages superintendents to invest in our Deaf youths, involving in newspaper in education programs where every individual Deaf child wakes up in the morning, picking up and reading a newspaper delivered to their dorm rooms. PTA can fund these worthwhile projects.
