Papa Hemingway's Haunts in Old Havana

Found in La Bodeguita del Medio in Old Havana, Cuba

   Ernest Hemingway left a huge legacy in Old Havana and San Francisco de Paula in the twenty or so years that he lived there.    He became the adopted son of Cuba during his stay there.    The warmth and love felt by the Cubans for his is visible as I wandered through town.   There seem to be as many images of Hemingway as there are of Che Guevara at least in and around Old Havana.   He was truly larger than life  when he was in Havana.
