I’ve been to Trinidad more times than I can count, yet I feel like I’m seeing it for the very first time. Every morning as I head to work, I marvel at the greenery and the beautiful lush mountains around me. How did I not appreciate them before?
When I lived in Beirut, one of my only complaints about the city itself was the pollution. There were days that the pollution was so bad that I felt like I couldn’t breathe. My eyes would burn as I headed to work in serveeces, whose AC had probably stopped working 20 years ago. My hair and skin began to feel different, and I almost always felt short of breath and tired..
The Caribbean, especially Trinidad, isn’t without its problems. Thats for shit sure. But if it’s one thing I really do appreciate about this country, it’s the clean air and the lush landscape. I feel like I can breathe again.
