A picture paints a thousand words they say.  And on Wednesday night one hundred or so natives of Trinidad and Tobago painted Buenos Aires, Argentina red. The friendly international between Trinidad and  Tobago and Argentina saw a huge injection of ¨Trini¨ culture courtesy the Ministry of tourism which used the event as a branding exercise.



Tassa and rhythm sections rang out loud at the Estadio Monumental where the Argentines, who love to sing at matches, lapped it up. 



It all ended with great friendship between the fans of two nations, and at the end of the game, the Argentine people applauded the effort of the Caribbean team who put up a fight despite losing the match 3-0.
