During the Havana portion of our trip to Cuba, we stayed at the Hotel Capri. I mentioned this in my review of Havana Nocturne because it’s one of the hotel-casinos that the Mob built in the 1950s.

The bartender at the rooftop bar of the Hotel Capri decided that Rick looked like Ernest Hemingway, with his beard and canvas hat. After that, he insisted that we order daiquiris! It’s a good thing that it turned out we liked them.

Here are my previous posts about Cuba, most shared as Saturday Snapshot posts at West Metro Mommy Reads:

  1. Your photos are outstanding! The top shot looks like a painting. You and Rick really capture the colors that resonate with thoughts of Cuba!
    In Key West there is an annual Hemingway look a like contest. FYI!
