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.


ASL Illegal

Florida state troopers are now enforcing a new law against distracted driving, warning all of us to keep our eyes on the road for safety stake, as we now can be ticketed if we are caught texting, especially in a school zone.  A Deaf couple in St. Augustine had their license suspended, when they were chatting using ASL, the judge refused to grant leniency, as the law specifically stated that we must keep our hands on the wheel.
