... Vegas style hearses and roaring flames!
Walked back along the road to try and find a good local roti
– met a friendly older lady and talked for about 1km until the roti shop where
I had a quick but very uninspiring roti breakfast.
As temple visit short went to see another – Hanuman Murti
with a massive statue of the monkey god – certainly makes a statement!
St Mary’s has a shop that sells bus tickets plus used ...
... 8211; extra 4 tt$ for an air
conditioned lounge with toilets, over airconditioned bus, a complete waste of
time boarding pass, a snotty driver (who told me to do up my daypack as the zip
was open an inch!) and some dubious music selections.
Took a detour on the way (not!) back to Pearls and found the
much feted Breakfast Shed – nice location on the water overlooking some
atmospheric rusting hulks but the food options a little uninspiring.
... long wait but there was plenty to look at. I saw one guy I had seen
earlier elsewhere again – he was distinctive for his T-shirt logo that struck a
chord – “it is what it is”
Only took 15 mins to hit the first traffic jam and
consequent detour – later discovered it was because of the Cat that was heading
up the steep long windy hill they call the saddle over to the other side –
... their stuff through a grandstand area. These bands have as many as 120 people playing steel drums on movable floats. It is noisy, exuberant and exciting … and we were lucky enough to view a number of the bands practicing with their supporters before moving through the grandstand area and seeing the whole crowd beginning to build for the evening. These people know how to organize a ‘party.
The second was running into another old ...
... parcel from the USA only to find that it had simply been abandoned in a nearby post office rather than at Customs. (Super sleuth Bridget located it after much leg work!)
The highlight of our time on the boat has undoubtedly been our trip to Tobago. The beaches were great and the snorkelling was some of the best I have found so far in the Caribbean. Would like to have stayed a lot longer but ….
We lift the boat out of the water soon ...
