The sea

We took a day-trip to an island about 2 hours by catemeran to a tiny island so we may enjoy some snorkelling and some fresh fresh fresh lobster! Yes, thelobster was very fresh as the fisherman on the catermeran jumped into the water and retrieved some for us to eat! It must have been the best meal I had in my whole stay in Cuba!

There were also iguanas and an island mouse that occupied the tiny island located south of Trinidad. In fact, the iguanas and mouse enjoyed our left-overs very much!

The Mountains

We did a day of trekking through some lovely bush and mountains. It was a relatively cool/wet day, but it was nice. We boarded an old Russion truck which chews-up 1 litre of petrol per 1.5 kilometers! So, not the most environmentally friendly of vehicles around.
