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.

Chase Bank

Deaf tellers at Chase Bank near Gallaudet can now seve their Deaf consumers in ASL. Most of the staff are fluent in ASL. Finally the Deaf  now can rob a bank without using a note, that's unlikely to happen at that branch, unless he's behind in his student loan payments. First a signing Starbuck, now a signing bank, and what's next. We even got a signing President that signs executive orders (rim shot). Gallaudet got a $250,000 donation from JP Morgan to deposit it at the Bank of America (really I don't know but a good monologue anyway) but not Wells Fargo, they hang up on us in the past. Besides, what's in your wallet?
