If you follow this blog you know I intended to post a photo or more every week. I have missed a few weeks. I have a good excuse, I was in Cuba for 2 weeks. If you have ever been to Cuba you know the internet is very poor. So I will try to catch up this week. I can assure you I did take lots of photos so I was kind of following my commitment of a photo a week. I’ll share many of the Cuba photos with you in the blogs to come. For this post I have chosen to show a few of the people I encountered in my walk around Trinidad. If you ever get to Cuba you owe it to yourself to take a tour to Trinidad. Trinidad just celebrated its 500th birthday. It was originally a sugar plantation town. It is now being preserved by the Cuban government and UNESCO as a world heritage site. The photo ops are endless. People are friendly (and not as pushy as I hear Havana is getting). Bed and Breakfasts are numerous. Cafes are superb. And night life fun -have a pina colda made in a real pineapple.
The man on the donkey and the guitar player in the images below simply asked for a peso for me to take their photo. The girl was celebrating her 15th birthday -a huge production for Cuban girls. It is kind of like a “coming of age” celebration. She was more than happy to let me photograph her.
