“Da plane! Da plane!” ( To Hemingwayland in Castro’s Fantasy island)

"With the exception of the worship of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, no worship is promoted more in Cuba than the worship of Ernest Hemingway...the Hemingway cult … was created more as a tourist attraction and propoganda device than anything else.” (Late leftist Argentinian author Jacobo Timmerman, after visiting Cuba in 1987.)

And in 1987 tourism to Castroland was not nearly as vital to the Stalinist regime's finances as it is today. Needless to add, Castro's best friend in the U.S. Congress nowadays, Jim McGovern, has a heavy hand in everything related to "Hemingway in Cuba."
