I was Ernest Hemingway's cook in Cuba

For almost 20 years, the Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway had a house on the Caribbean island of Cuba.

He wrote some of his best-selling novels at Finca Vigia, his large country house overlooking Havana.

Famous American movie stars, such as Gary Cooper and Ava Gardner, were regular guests there.

As a young boy Alberto Ramos worked at the finca, and later became Hemingway's cook.

Now in his 80s, he shares his memories of the hard-drinking novelist with Witness.
