These guys had it sussed.  They played outside the cathedral in Trinidad all day.  They wore a green ‘uniform’ and were on the money with their playing.  The guy, second from the right, sat on a box with half a dozen metal tongs over a sound box.  He played great bass riffs on it looking like he was just sitting there with his hands by his side.  The young guy has some great guitar chops, but whenever he started getting too fancy, the others would give him a look and pull him back in.

A Cuban sunset

We loved Trinidad in Cuba.  There are certainly lots of great photo opportunities.  One of the really nice places to get a view of the town is by climbing the bell tower of the church. We did this as the sunset one evening and was treated to a fantastic display as the sun slipped below the horizon over the sea.
