Having posted a blog of Cuban photographs previously and a philosophical Portrait Reflections in Cuba, I now have some further observations of this small, bustling, exciting, busy, frenetic and very visual country.
Founded in 1514, the town of Trinidad has the feel of a medieval European village dropped into the humidity of the tropics.
Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, the cobble-stoned streets and the bright multi-coloured houses are presented in a style that hasn’t changed in centuries. Whilst tobacco is now the prominent agricultural product, Trinidad was built on the sugar trade.
Discovering a back street where children were being led through dancing lessons in preparation for a local street parade late one afternoon was just a delight. The infectious joy on the faces of the children was a sight to behold.
