Havana, Cuba (sixth day)
In the yard the local fishing boats which sport endearing names like Gladys and Doris, are being painted and repaired, mostly without the aid of modern technology. Handsaws cut timbers, rivets are driven home by hand. Into the midst of all this, sitting in a 1957 Hillman Minx driven by Rafaelito, comes Gregorio Fuentes, the longest-surviving of all Hemingway’s old pals, a man who has spent eighty years of his life in boats and is now one of the most famous fishermen since St Peter.
