    by Jefie

My main reason for wanting to go to Havana in the first place was to visit all the sites that American writer Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) had once visited and made popular. Hemingway spent quite a few years in Cuba and his love for this island gave birth to such amazing novels as "The Old Man and the Sea" and "Islands in the Stream". So of course, La Bodeguita del Medio was at the very top of my to-do list! This charming little joint is located just a few steps away from the Plaza de la Catedral. When we got there, the place was crowded with people from all over the world and musicians were playing traditional Cuban music. We had to pay 8 CUC for two mojitos but they were hands down the best mojitos we drank during our entire trip (and we drank several!) and the atmosphere was unbeatable. A truly great experience!
