Viva Cuba Libre, the colours of Trinidad, Cuba. (The girl with a big heart)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Viva Cuba Libre, this photo is very typical of Trinidad as the wonderful wrought iron guards decorates 80% of windows in this city.

It is great for photographers, as these wrought iron grills, guards and gates cast shadows and people are idle and watching their neighbours go on their errands and stopping to talk to each other. Most do not mind, if you take a photo. There seems to be many people without a job, but many people have in fact few part time jobs. The average wage is 15-20 pesos/ month. (1 CUC peso= $1)

People in the tourist industry make 10x as much in tips.

Cuba Libre is also a popular drink, a highball made of cola, lime, and white rum.

Hello Tom
I just came from the Forum. No emails notifications.

My pipes are also clogged, and from the 13th of dec. They really need more plumbers to solve this problem (I like that).
I wonder how long this is going to last?.
For the occasion. Happy New Year and all the best to you,
This set of images from Cuba is Excellent!
