Trinidad day 1

We woke up early because of the neighbor’s rooster. Even though we loved our hosts and the backyard we decided to move to a different casa where they had availability for more days. Mirella e Ivan was only a block away so we we still went back to El Chef for laundry. The three of us had the were the only guests and had the whole second floor including a nice terrace to our selves. After checking in we drove 4 km to Casilda to get our spare tire fixed, but the mechanic was at lunch so we had to come back later. We went for a city sightseeing with Ute for a few hours, walked around Plaza Mayor, visited a small museum and climbed the bell tower for nice views of Trinidad. Later we went back to Casilda and got the tire fixed, and then we parked the car for the day and had a few Cuba Libre on our terrace (2 USD for 1/2 bottle of white rum!).

In the evening we found a really nice Paladar named La Ceiba where we had soup, amazing shrimps, fruit, desert and Cuban wine for almost nothing. We started talking to Peter from Germany who was sitting next to us alone. He was bicycling around on Cuba on his own. We spent the evening at Casa de la Musica, where a live band was playing in the middle of the huge stairs and both locals and tourists were dancing salsa. The stairs were full of people watching and/or drinking.
