    street

    Favorite thing: The best way to have some good memories of Trinidad is to start going out without any guide or map.
    This could be a good advice everywhere, but particulary in this small town, you will probably not remember museums or square names, but you will get well impressed in your mind the slow living in the narrow streets and the colourful colonial houses at the street sides.

    Fondest memory: Streets are narrow and very similar and many of them have no name, so it's easy to get a bit lost, I say a bit lost because the town is really small, but that's the best you can do in trinidad, losing the sense of direction and the sense of the time passing by.

    Old Cars

    50's Car

    Favorite thing: There are many of these old cars still around in use. Many of the old cars in the best shape have now been exported. I expect that many of them are now used by Hollywood for period movies.

    Goat in Trinidad

    Favorite thing: This goat was grazing next to the Iglesia Santa Ana and didn't seem to be disturbed by the people walking by.

    Note the typical windows

    Favorite thing: Street scene, note the windows that not is glass windows but wooden lattices.
