Our Last Day in Trinidad Cuba

Our last afternoon in Trinidad mom and Connie went to the beach.  They rode in an old classic car for a taxi.  But you will never guess what happened.  Mom forgot the camera and me.  She was hurrying, and I did not get to go.  But Connie did have a camera, so this is what they saw.  I was excited to see it also.

They went to Playa Ancon, which our guidebook said is the best beach on the southern coast.

Looks great!

When they retuned, mom took me to the lobby of our hotel.  Are these presents for me??

We stayed at Iberostar Trinidad.   This is a nice hotel on a town square.  The lobby looks very pretty.

From our central location, we walked on our tour of the city.  We really like this hotel.

One evening we returned to the Plaza Mayor area and listened to music on the stairs I showed you a few days ago.  We heard a group of musicians play and people started dancing.

It was very nice and a lot of fun.  Then another group of musicians played and professional dancers performed for us.

We liked it all.

Before we left Trinidad in the morning, mom and I walked more streets to further experience this city.  These are public telephones.

I never saw public or pay phones before.  Telephone booths were everywhere before cell phones were widely used.  Across the plaza from our hotel we saw children waiting to enter the school.

This church across the park from our hotel seems serene.

I will miss Trinidad, but am looking forward to visiting Cienfuegos, Cuba.
