part two: hemingway's hangouts

From the pages of a tourista's travelogue (some day I might share the real stories, not just the sights; when I actually figure out what happened...for now...)

Another requisite pasttime while touristing in Havana is to visit the two famous bars immortalized in Hemingway's words. The place on the left, the Bodeguita del Medio is a vibrant, chilled out place with hundreds of thousands of memories marked on the walls in sharpie, bic, and HB. The Floridita (pictured on the right) is a dimly lit dive with a very thin coat of class and shitty, overpriced mojitos. It was 127% worth it.
