Description

El Floridita is a classical historic bar in downtown Havana. It used to be a favorite hangout of Ernest Hemingway, and he is still here in the shape of a metal statue. And the bar is doing a brisk trade of daiquiri cocktails. This is the very bar were the original owner composed the original daiquiri. The most striking thing about life at today's Floridita bar, however, is the photo enthusiasm of the patrons, most of them tourists from all corners of the globe. This is a place were you come, not to see and be seen, but to photograph yourself and your friends - posing with Papa Hemingway, or with a classic daiquiri in your hand.
