Trinidad, Cuba with Zeb the Duck

I, Zeb the Duck and my group of humans arrived in Trinidad, Cuba.  Lonely Planet describes Trinidad as a one of a kind, perfectly preserved Spanish colonial settlement, where the clocks stopped ticking in 1850 and, apart from tourists, have yet to restart.

I am not sure about all that, but I have never seen this street sign anywhere else.

Our first morning in Trinidad we walked through town.  Here are some of our observations.  This is the reason for the horse cart crossing sign.

Horse and cart.  I like it!

Decorated and wrapped, but mom didn’t buy one for us.

I saw everything while wandering these streets.

Here are cars, bikes, a horse and people all mingling together.  The mountains as a backdrop contribute to Trinidad’s beauty.

Trinidad has hotels, casa particulares, and hostals.  Hostal Colina is bright and has flowering trees.  My friend, Channel, the cutest bear, and I are enjoying the view from the hostal.

Mom and I brought small balls and candy to give as presents.  This little girl’s mom said she could have the blue ball in her hand.  In her other hand she has strawberry candy and butterscotch candy.  Mom said we could only bring candy that was individually wrapped.

Here is an old car used as a taxi

There is so much to see in Trinidad, so I will show you more next time.  We hope you like Trinidad as much as we do.  See you soon.
