Monday, February 1st, dawned warm and springlike, with TotalAdventure being awakened by crowing roosters. The countryside near Trinidad reaches from high mountains to white sand Caribbean beaches.
A 1951 Chevy was hired for the day. For a 65 year old car, it ran great , though the driver would not take it over a high mountain pass.
We drove to a finca for horseback riding.
Lunch was being prepared – boiled yuca.
In Cuba, rum flows like water.
Off on a trail to the mountains.
To a large cenote – cool water in a cave – perfect after riding in the hot sun.
Torre Manacas Iznaga – 200 years old, 200 feet tall , 61 meters – built by sugar cane plantation slaves in 1816.
