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.


Citrus Bowl

We were not given press credentials , so there was no Deaf media coverage of the Citrus Bowl yesterday. As expected the legendary coach Saban's Crimson Tides defeated Michigan,  35-16 while I was in the Twilight Zone. Alabama is a powerhouse to be reckon with. Nowadays they are more diversity in sports reporting due to the emergence of  social media, and yet the Deaf are still an untapped market.
