San Francisco

The correspondence which arrived after the owner’s death remains on the bed, unopened. Also appear Picasso ceramics and walls, posters of bullfights and the horns and the stuffed heads of animals killed on their hunts. Finally, one can glimpse the privacy of the writer. An intimacy that always protected with much zeal. In the dining room where they always put a cover over for the unexpected visitor, is a mosaic with the inscription: “No one enters here without being called.” As the writer complained about how much of what visitors importuned, Miss Mary, his fourth wife, ordered the construction of three-story tower adjacent to the house. The first floor would serve as home to more than 50 cats from the farm, the second been kept fishing gear and hunting the owner, and the third, having before his eyes a splendid panorama of the city, their study would .

On this particular tells a story quite hilarious. Hemingway came one day supposed to write the tower and stayed there for 15 minutes, during which he strove in vain to build a sentence. He got out and never again to use that room for the job. He could not stand the loneliness of his new study … .. and continued writing in his room.

It stated that thanks to his third wife is that Hemingway began to live on the farm of San Francisco de Paula, but it is curious to know that everything successful and enjoyable than was actually the writer’s relationship with the place, could not have never materialized .

The classic daiquiri is a whipped blend of rum, lemon and sugar over crushed ice to which is added sometimes a stroke of maraschino. For Hemingway, as would the other Colombian Gabriel Garcia Marquez Nobel Prize for literature, invented the Daiquiri wild. The U.S. ordered to remove the sugar mixture and fold the amount of rum and crushed ice. Thus arose the pope “s Daiquiri. Such was his love for the cocktail that retreat to Finca Vigia, almost always seen him take in a thermos or a large glass, as he said … .. “the Daiquiri’s way.” Knowing all this is easy to understand the motivations that made a statement in relation to Cuba on another occasion. “I love this country and I feel at home, and where a man feels at home, apart from the birthplace, that is the site it was intended.”.
