Cynthia: What I want People to Know about Trinidad

The thing that stood out to me the most about Trinidad were the gardens in almost every yard, the houses themselves, and the people that live there.

In the rows of houses almost identical in structure, the residents have planted flowers, trees, and interesting plants including cacti and bamboo.  It shows how each resident personalizes and expresses themselves in the neighborhood. 

Not only are the gardens unique to each house, but the brick homes themselves are painted in an array of colors, from blues to yellows; it really makes Trinidad a diverse community.  Not only are the homes diverse, but also the people that live there.  There are younger families and older residents, and they are all very friendly people, which makes the community even closer.  Trinidad is a humble, friendly, and unique environment.

Here are some pictures Cynthia has taken in Trinidad:


  1. Good descriptive words about Trinidad! It seems your group really had a positive experience exploring the neighborhood and meeting the residents. I hope that as others read Team Trinidad's posts that they are encouraged to visit the neighborhood and to look past some of the negative publicity in recent years.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Those are some interesting photos, I especially like the last one. Bright colors always create a nice neighborhood atmosphere.

  3. I love how you can still get a feel for the neighborhood even with close-up shots. Great eye!
