Trinidad and Tucs...



Another slightly random posting from the Americas this evening. Here I am with housemate John standing by a glamorous lady in a square in the town of Trinidad, on the southern coast of Cuba, around five years ago. Justin is in the middle, but he refused to imitate, instead concentrating on eating his packet of Tuc biscuits. Fair enough I suppose.

Trinidad is another unspoilt beautiful little colonial town, with some great beaches to the south and some rainforest to trek around to the north. It’s a lovely place. Great rum too. This statue is located in the Central Plaza in the centre of town, but once again my research skills have failed to uncover as to who the statue is. Answers on a postcard please…

he insisted on standing in the centre of the picture and also refused to take part?

What a guy.

(although nice work with the tuc biscuits - I kind of know where he's coming from with those)

My housekeeper is from Trinidad and I will ask her who the statue is supposed to be. I'll let you know next week.

She said that the common thought was that it was the "Lady of Libery" dating from the communist take-over of Fidel. Others thought that it was Battista's wife who was a very charitable lady with schools, libraries and such.
