You will also visit the museum dedicated to Alexander Von Humboldt, a scientist and adventurer where you learn about the American writer Ernest Hemingway who lived in the Hotel Ambos Mundos in room 511 in the 30ies . Not much has changed since Hemingway took his Mojitos or Daiquiris in "La Bodeguita de Medio" and in the bar "El Floridita". After this lovely morning, you  deserve a good Cuban lunch in the restaurant Inän y Justo. Later you will drive with an Old timer of the 50ies or 60ies along the Malecón and you will visit the modern city districts of Havana. Planned stops among others are  the Centro Habana, Vedado and Miramar,  Capitolia, El Gran Teatro de La Havana, the  former Havana University and the Plaza de la Revolución. In the evening, a professional bartender will tell you interesting stories about the famous Cuban cocktails. Would you like to prepare your Cuba Libre, Mojito, Daiquiri or Cubanito? If you don't like alcohol you can mix your non-alcoholic drink. Have fun and enjoy!
