The house where Elian Gonzales
stayed in Florida is now a shrine
It's been 10 years since the Elian Gonzales custody crisis
. Elian and his mother emigrated to the US; his mother did not survive the trip; and in the ensuing weeks an international crisis arose between Elian's Cuban father and his US relatives, which resulted in Elian's return to the island. Now, ten years later, the relatives have preserved the boy's room and most of the house as a permanent shrine to the six months he spent there.
