... It's possible to live very comfortably here on the island on $300.00 US per month.
The climate is incomparable with an average temperature of 26 Celcius and the sun shines 340 days of the year. I'm where I'm supposed to be.....this much I know!
The pictures are of the sunrise from the penthouse condo where I'm staying temporarily. Does it get more ...
... creatures. The ocean museum was interesting though with an amazing collection of shells. Also there to greet us was a lovely green parrot native to the island called a ‘Guacamaya’ a laughing parrot apparently.
On the way back we saw many flamingos and lots of small herons. In all it was a superb trip and we are looking forward to seeing a greater variety of birds tomorrow on our trip to the Caroni Bird Sanctuary.
