Street party Condado


December 17. 2005  Day of San Lazaro.  In the small village Condado in the region of Trinidad, southern Cuba. Oh what a party!!

The tower of Manaca Iznaga


At the peak of sugar industry there were more than fifty cane sugar mills in operation in Valle de los Ingenios in southern Cuba outside of Trinidad.

The tower (from wich the picture is taken)  and the bell in top of it was partly used as an alarm in case of fire or escaping slaves.

A cowboy needs a ride

  In Cuba the horse is still a common way of transportation in the countryside. This guy though had to conform with a two-wheeler this particular day.  Trinidad, southern Cuba.
