Hemingway House outside Havana is great - saw it in July 2014


Took a tour to Havana - it's just fifteen or so minutes outside the city. Forty acres, giant tropical trees, wonderful big rooms decorated just the way he left it. I heard some hotel is going to renovate it with improved US-Cuba relations so catch it quick in its original state before its turned into an Empire Suites.

Saw it in the mid 90's. You couldn't go in, just peer in the windows - I assume it's still like that? It was wonderful but clearly in disrepair. I sure hope it's only carefully restored & not ruined but probably wishful thinking.

Where there any cats?

Goddamit! Things ain't workin' out for me today!

If you go to my facebook page - Stephen Conn (shots of cats as Simon and Garfunkel in the profile pic ) - go to photo albums, and go to the one titled "Speaking of Great Artists and Suicide...", you can look at all the pics I took of the house during my visit. Enjoy!
