February, 2014 - TRINIDAD, CUBA

We took a wild 1 1/2 hour taxi ride to Trinidad, in a 1953 Chev, driven by a young man practicing (I think) for the Indy 500.  The Chev was original (including no seat belts), except it was now powered by a Hyundi diesel motor.  What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Trinidad is a World Heritage site, with some of the best Colonial architecture in Spanish America.  That is not to mention the American vintage cars.  I saw 5 mint 1957 Chevs pass by the restaurant as we ate one evening!!!

"Are we there yet???"
