I Can still see Pilar Sittin Here at Anchor in My Mind

    The Old Man and the Sea, the Ernest Hemingway book based on the sleepy fishing village of Cojimar, just to the east of Havana.  It is a place that sets your mind traveling back to the days when Captain Fuentes, Ernest Hemingway and some of his friends would board Pilar and head out on one of their fishing adventures.  Then upon their return would head up the hill to the La Terraza de Cojimar for food and drinks and fish tales to share with friends and fellow fishermen.   ;o)
