at the BODEGUITA del MEDIO - La Habana/Cuba
gabilombardo.weebly.com www.flickr.com/photos/gabi16 LA BODEGUITA del MEDIO is a typical restaurant-bar of La Habana (Cuba). It is a famous tourist destination because of the personalities which have patronized it: Salvador Allende, Pablo Neruda and Ernest Hemingway. La Bodeguita lays claim to being the birthplace of the Mojito cocktail, prepared in the bar since its opening in 1942, although this is disputed. The rooms are full of curious objects, frames, photos, as well as the walls covered by signatures of famous or unknown customers, recounting the island's past.
