*Alberto Korda – the photographer who took “that” iconic photograph of Che Guevara.
*Gregorio Fuentes – Ernest Hemingway’s former boatman and captain of “The Pilar”, considered by some to be the inspiration for “The old man of the sea”.
*Philip Agee – former CIA agent and whistleblower with whom he spent the night (an overnight flight from Havana to London) over a glass or two of El Ron.
