*FYI- I left Trinidad in April 2012…please continue reading anyway!*
I’m a 25 year old girl from Miami, getting back in touch with her Trini roots. Although both of my parents are from Trinidad, this is my first attempt at living in the Caribbean. Woop woop! Wish me luck!
I started the “This is” series while living in Beirut..where I spent an absolutely incredible year and a half after graduating from university. Check out my first blog, This is Beirut, here (which I still keep updated btw). This is Trinidad, will be the second installment in this series. Hopefully it’s as interesting as the first! Beirut will definitely be hard to beat!
A little about my past? Well..where do I begin?
I’ve climbed The Great Wall of China, volunteered at an orphanage in Bangkok, seen a bull fight in Madrid, and been to a “coffee shop” in Amsterdam. I’ve had high tea at the Burj al Arab in Dubai, paid 4 euros for a waffle in Belgium, been inside of the Colosseum in Rome, and eaten jerk chicken in Jamaica. I’ve walked through the rain forest in Costa Rica, Ground Zero in New York, The Louvre in Paris, and The Opera House in Sydney. I’ve experienced Chicago in January, Trinidad during carnival, a nude beach in Barcelona, and the heat in Kuwait. I’ve seen the Alps in Switzerland, used an outhouse in Kentucky, been on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, and had a margarita in Key West. I’ve had knefe in Amman, been on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, driven on the Formula 1 Race Track in Monte Carlo, and watched Charles Barkley play poker in Vegas.
You could say I like to keep it fresh.
