Trinidad and Tobago
So I have finally landed. It took us a while, but we are finally here. It has been years since we have been able to get back to Trinidad to visit family and friends and experience this wonderful Caribbean island. I am excited to share with you a few of my first glimpses and impressions. I have so many things that I want for you too to experience! I want so share with you the sunshine, the warmth of the people, the generosity of spirit, the huge variety of farmers markets, oh and by the way did I mention the delicious food?
One of the things that I personally love about Trinidad is that most of the street foods that are available on a pretty widespread basis are vegan. I can’t think of many other places I have travelled to where this is the case. The island is influenced by both African and Indian cultures so you can only begin to imagine what a wonderful culinary combination that makes. I hope that during my time here I will have the opportunity to investigate this further and enjoy the full breadth of this wonderfully diverse cuisine.
One of the things that I am not so fond of is the dense population of mosquitos that seem to be enjoying me as a diverse culinary experience with my fresh from the UK oh so very delicious blood! I hope they get as bored of me soon as I am with being bitten but I have to say it is a relatively small price to pay to be able to enjoy this amazing island for a few weeks.
