On her trip to Cuba, Kim Kardashian realized how “cool” Ernest Hemingway was, and how much she and Papa had in common. Kardashian claims she learned so much about Cuban history from touring Ernest Hemingway’s Cuban home, that it gave her new perspective. Kardashian was amazed to see Hemingway’s furniture, books, and magazines exactly as they were when Hemingway was alive. But according to Kim Kardashian, the best part of the tour was Hemingway’s bathroom, where she found out exactly how much she really had in common with the writer.
But, according to the Inquisitr, it wasn’t all fun and games for the Kardashians in Cuba, as the WiFi and creature comforts were not up to the Kardashian standards. First, the Kardashians obviously didn’t research the trip or the history of Cuba before landing in Havana, because they didn’t realize that only recently has it been easier to get American goods, which means that most Cubans have no idea who the Kardashians are, or what Keeping Up With the Kardashians is all about. So when the Kardashian family landed in Cuba, nobody noticed, and few people cared, leaving them confused. Next, limited WiFi meant limited social media, and no success posting on Instagram and SnapChat. Several Kardashians allegedly complained about this, as if the concierge could fix Cuba’s internet.
Us Weekly reported that Kim Kardashian was thrilled to learn how much she has in common with Ernest Hemingway, author of The Sun Also Rises and The Old Man and the Sea. Kim Kardashian visited Hemingway’s home with Kanye West, and several of the other Kardashians, including Kourtney, who remembers reading Hemingway in school.
“We’re excited just because we studied about Hemingway, and it’s cool to see how people lived.”
But for Kim Kardashian, the biggest thrill came when she got to see Hemingway’s bathroom, and realized just how much they have in common. It seems that Ernest Hemingway liked to weigh himself every day, and make notes on his bathroom wall about his weight gains and losses.
“That’s like me! I do [that],” Kim chimes in. Later, in a confessional, she adds: “This house is so cool. It’s such a part of Cuban history.”
Who would have thought that Kim Kardashian and Ernest Hemingway shared dieting habits and secrets?
But New York Magazine wondered how similar Kim Kardashian‘s diet and weight loss tips and habits really match up with Hemingway’s. First, Hemingway was an adventurous eater, and the kind of guy who would try anything once. Kim Kardashian was shocked when her sidekick, Jonathan Cheban, ate horse meat in Iceland, and she refused to try any.
“OK guys Jonathan is about to try horse for the first time so I’m gonna snapchat him doing it. Oh my god I’m so sad.”
Ernest Hemingway was an avid hunter, fisherman, and forager, known to live off the land. Hemingway took great pride in eating meals made of fish and animals he had caught himself, while Kim Kardashian claims she likely couldn’t find her way around a grocery store.
“I haven’t been to a grocery store in like four years… I just don’t even know what flavor deodorants they have anymore.”
But weight loss does seem to be a common thread between Hemingway and Kardashian, as both were able to drop significant weight in a short period of time. Hemingway is said to have lost 30 pounds during a severe depression, while Kim Kardashian boasts that she dropped 60 pounds on Atkins following the birth of her son, Saint.
But in terms of one of Hemingway’s favorite hobbies, the two stars part ways. Hemingway loved to drink, and Kardashian does not drink at all.
“I do not drink alcohol at all. My sisters drink, so when they get a little crazy, I am there to pull them down.”
