While we were in Cuba, my friend and I took an excursion from Cayo Santa Maria to Trinidad via Sancti Spiritus -- which was a short stop to get a sangria and explore the streets and churches. Our first stop in Trinidad was a lovely pottery house called Casa Chichi. We were able to watch the items being made, and explore the shop -- which was open-air and so wonderful to be in. I picked out a cute, green teapot to take home with me.
After lunch, where we were serenaded by a local band, we were taken on a tour of some of the main roads in Trinidad, and then we were told to go shop and explore and meet back at La Canchancara -- where we could get some canchanchara served in small glasses that were made by Casa Chichi.
We visited two different markets, and found a few art galleries to explore. The art in Trinidad was amazing. It seemed like such a creative city where, again, the Cuban people were so warm and welcoming. I also found some beautiful leather sandals that I can't wait to wear this summer. Trinidad is definitely worth a visit while in Cuba.
