Maracas Beach

After a hard-fought, 1-0, battle with Mexico on Thursday, the U.S. U-17 WNT took a day to venture out to Maracas Beach on the north part of Trinidad. The team appreciated the winding, mountainous road and the absolutely gorgeous scenery, and didn't leave without trying the famous "bake and shark," which is fried shark stuffed into fried bread. Yes, we said shark. And, yes, it was delicious. Above, Samantha Mewis, Courtney Verloo, Olivia Klei and Cloee Colohan take advantage of a photo op overlooking the valley below.

These two vendors certainly found some buyers for their bracelets, anklets, necklaces, etc.

Courtney Verloo tries out the bake and shark at Richard's, which we heard was the best place to go for it.
