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.


Oklahoma School for the Deaf

The Oklahoma School for the Deaf will  soon start construction of its new state of the art $2 millions aquatic center. Its locker rooms also serves as a storm shelter to keeping students safe , especially during a tornado. I predicted one of their swimmers will win a gold medal at the Deaflympics someday.
