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.

Deaf Rower

Mo O'Brien became the first Deaf woman to row a boat across the Atlantic Ocean, a 3,000 miles journey, being out on the rough seas for almost two months. The crew of three takes turn rowing four hours with two hours rest in between. The British Deaf pharmacy dispenser enjoys the views of the humpback whales, stars in the night skies, and the challenges of teamwork, overcoming obstacles along the way.
