Cuba - Hemingway and Cojimar

Havana-27.jpg

(click to enlarge) This large neoclassical monument surrounds a life-size bust of Hemingway - sort of like an oversize halo. You'll need to look carefully to find the head. The monument was built in 1962, a year after Hemingway's suicide. He lived in Cuba from 1940-1960.
