Our annual trek to West Mall in Trinidad was great fun and also eye-opening to see the modernization that had been accomplished over the past year. Here are some scenes from The Falls, as it is now called. The white tiles on the floor look like marble! Because renovation is still going on, some stores have yet to move in. When they do, there will be almost nothing that you cannot get here.

FountainA new fountain for the West Mall, which is now called "The Falls."
AngelThe theme this year seems to be Angels, since there were several of them scattered on the two floors of the mall.
Large WreathA lovely wreath hung from the ceiling on the Mezzanine floor.
EscalatorOne of the young girls with us, ten years old, was quite frightened to go on the escalator. Although there have been escalators in at least two malls in Trinidad, they often are not working and so some young people are not experienced in navigating them. This one worked very well!
