He paid 20 euros and a can of Fanta, he originally bought it from a black gentleman on a beach in Tenerife, if I rememeber rightly he got a Magnum classic thrown in with the deal....








Seriously, great post, as for the worth.....priceless.

Slightly OT but did you know that Rolex saved Owen Wilson's life after his attempted suicide.

PR at it's worst

I SAW El Che's watch in a glass box in Santa Clara on January 3d. It had a beige face and was no Rolex I can assure you. Put CS3 away

I also saw his beard clippings in a glass box in Havana which bought a very unexpected tear to my eye

Che - Legend. Im currently reading his Reminiscence of the Cuban Revolution. Next on the list is the Bolivan Diary. Its a great book and a good insight into his life. Well recommended for anyone. Bit of an eye openner too

Nice to see that looting corpses is still in the CIA's remit !

So you went to his monument in Santa Maria - quite an eye opener isn't it - as is the whole country. I found the monument almost intimidating. Perhaps it was the armed guards!!

The 'tools of the trade' being a doctor were pretty scary too!

We've been there twice now & love the country - a real humbling yet educational community - our 11 year old wants to go back again..........
