Hemingway Country!

Hemingway spent a lot of time in Cuba. He loved the people and the country. He wrote many of his books here, some in his hotel room in Havana and some in his home in the country, now a museum. We visited two of his favorite bar / restaurants.
La Bodeguita is a tiny hole in the wall that seats maybe twenty. It was packed with tourists drinking severely overpriced, watered down mojitos. We stuck our heads in for a breath of the atmosphere and moved on.
El Floridita is a bit larger with a old fashioned bar and a bronze statue of Papa sitting on his favorite corner stool. The daiquiri's were also overpriced and reportedly not the same quality as Hemingway drank here. We paused for a few photos but said “No, gracias” to the daiquiri's.
