Ernest Hemingway’s Communist Cabana

23 Jul , 2015  

Today marking Ernest Hemingway’s 116th birthday, I thing a blog post about where he used to live n Cuba is warranted. Despite tensions between the US and Cuba during his tenure at Casa del Hemingway, this is where the guayabera-loving author wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Old Man and the Sea,  A Movable Feast, and four more books. After his untimely death in 1960, the government of Cuba took over his home, however it was not until 2007 that it was converted into a museum, with purported exact likeness of how it was during his residency. The photographs were taken by remeczla and show great detail of what it must Pappy must have surrounded himself with besides strong liquor and cigars and a projected sense of emasculation.

 

NOTE: I know these pictures are tiny as shit but you can click on them and they will be expanded.
