Ernest Hemingway Lived in Cuba for 20 Years
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Ernest Hemingway, was born in Illinois. He grew up in Chicago, drove ambulances during World War I, and almost got married while being treated for battle wounds while in Milan. Needless to say, the man has traveled around the world quite a bit, but did you know that he stayed in Cuba for a while?
By a while, we mean two decades! It was while he was staying in Cuba and presumably enjoying the beautiful beaches while smoking a fat Cuban cigar that he wrote The Old Man and the Sea, as well as For Whom the Bell Tolls.
