Papa's Place

Ernest Hemingway would have been 100 this year. To mark the occasion, CBS News Sunday Morning devotes this Web site to an exploration of the writer's adopted home, Cuba. Here is the Cuba where Hemingway wrote his last novel, which will be published only this year. And, here is Cuba as it is today--its people, its politics, its music and its sports.color>size>
