Simple Tools

Simple tools for simple jobs does not mean the jobs are easy.

Here, workers re-pave a section of the cobblestone street near Plaza Mayor in Trinidad, Cuba. Picks, shovels, and hoes are used to remove the stones. The area is leveled with gravel and the stones are refitted and tamped into place with wooden posts.

On this July day the work done is in the cool shade of early morning.

  1. Seems more peaceful and connected to the environment compared to watching dozer’s and heavy equipment force their paving power to make roads level.
    Thanks for taking us to Trinidad.
