Stunning Trinidad in Cuba.

french ideas

It’s easy to see why Trinidad has been called “the museum city of Cuba.” The meticulously preserved town offers a window into the past, from its sprawling colonial palaces and plazas to its remnants of sugar mills and slave barracks from another era. Soak up the rich Spanish colonial architecture by taking a stroll through the picturesque cobble stone streets of this very walkable city.

Awesome “Evass restaurant” in Playa del Carmen.

Nearly hidden in a non touristic localisation of Playa del Carmen, this jewel is a really great place where to go. Go by car or take a cab, but you should not miss this beautifull restaurant. They offer an art galery on the upper level as well.

This restaurant is very well decorated an the staff is awesome. Warm welcome and attention to details at all time. We loved it.

The menu is purely Mexican hight level cuisine and some international to. They have an excellent wine selection to make you enjoy the moment you will spend at Evass.

The four of us started with some Tacos tostados to share while waiting for our main courses. This was beautiful and then, two got some delicious Hamburgers, one got the awesome pasta and I choosed the duck filet. All our dishes were really excellent.

The desserts were at the same level and my Chocolate with Mole Fondant was just divine. We finished with a lovely Tequila…

This was an stunning experience and for sure, they will see us again.

We know very little about what happened to London in this period.
