I'll take a look later, Gen—going out now. Wear a facemark and watch out for those giant Salties.

Luckily, there is 0 covid case in the Territory where I'm in now. There hasn't been one for the past 2 months until an isolated case cropped up a few days ago.

Salties might be the biggest thread. We went bush camping two days ago. There was a lovely plunge pool there. We had a chat with the ranger who said swimming was alright but they can never vouch 100% for it being croc free. So hubby went in. I didn't, not because of the crocs but I'm not a water person. Next day, sure enough, a croc was spotted. Swimming closed until they catch it.

Gen, do they capture and relocate those big crocs or do they kill them?

There would be an uproar if they killed them. No, they relocate them which is not easy as they are very territorial, they'd better not release them in another croc's territory or it would be a death sentence. They also relocate them to a croc farm if available.

Never heard of a croc handbag, boots, etc. Only alligator.

That's green mayo, Michael. I don't know why it's green. Below is their meat version, called a Cuban mixto. It has various types of pork. Sadly, I've never been to Cuba.

Cilantro mayo sounds good. I haven’t been to Cuba either....closest I got is Little Havana in Miami.  Actually the closest I got was Key West, Florida....just 90 miles away.

Thanks for the mayo report, folks. I've been to Key West too, Michael. When I was in Montreal waiting for my Irish passport renewal, I almost went down to Cuba to wait. Alas, it was hurricane season and I didn't want anymore complications. I've had a drink in all the other Hemingway places.

Did you make it out to Bimini, Bahamas?  I was fortunate to get a magazine shoot there once.  He lived there as well.  The great sport fishing drew him out there.

Ah yes, Bimini. I've done shoots on a few islands in the stream, but I've never been to Bimini. 

 

Hemingway spent a lot of time on Bimini between 1935 and 1937, but he never really lived (settled) there. He was living with his family in Key West. If he was by himself on Bimini, he usually stayed at the Compleat Angler Hotel. When he had his wife and boys with him he rented or stayed with friends like Michael Lerner. It was a very important, pivotal place to him and I will have to add it to the spots I did not have a proper Papa beverage. 

 

This Hemingway story recently published in The New Yorker seems to be set in Bimini:  https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/06/08/pursuit-as-happiness
