The other day I was talking a well-travelled short-cut to avoid Saddle Road traffic when I had to stop at a speed bump to wait for opposing traffic to file past because parked cars made the road single lane. “Ay stranger! How you doing?” I looked at the driver of the car going in the opposite direction and pretended to recognise the woman who clearly knew me. “I good.  Long time no see.” “Yes.  You know.  Everything good with you?” “Cyah complain.  We need to lime soon.” “Yes.  We’ll catch up soon.” “OK.  See you.” The exchange must have taken all...

The carnival season and ‘playing mas’ (being in-costume in a carnival band on Carnival Monday and Tuesday) is an addiction for many Trinis.  So much so that they (Trinis) have tried to recreate the experience wherever they have settled in significant numbers: Australia, New York, Philadelphia, Toronto, London and Miami to name a few.   Many Trinis will even spend the year flying from one carnival to another.   But why?  What’s so special about carnival that would make people literally take loans out to participate.  Here are four reasons   Sex   Surprised?  Then you’ve never experienced carnival.    ...

I always find the, usually, 2 ½ hour ferry ride from Trinidad to Tobago provides a physical opportunity to step down a gear and unwind from the frenetic Port of Spain pace in preparation for tranquil Tobago. This time was no different. Landing on Tobago you just feel as though you’re on a Caribbean island.  Everything just feels smaller and more manageable. Less frenzied. I realized I was starving! The text I’d sent to a friend living in Tobago in an attempt to locate fish broth turned up nothing, after all, “It’s Sunday in Tobago… “   So my friend...

Peche Patisserie     “Come, Now!”   The small and intimate Peche Patisserie is so busy on a Saturday and Sunday, now that word has got out, that it is necessary to book in order to guarantee a seat. Being one of the breakfasting patrons when it first opened I feel a bit peeved about this and go there less. However, I live within walking distance of Peche and as my ego recovers I’m discovering that if I telephone when I feel a “Peche” coming on, pretty soon after I’m seated and indulging.    My personal affinity for the patisserie...

Every time Trinis meet visitors and especially people who are going to be here for a year or longer, the conversation inevitably turns to Carnival and how great it is.  It’s the Greatest Show on Earth don’t ya know. Well I don’t think it’s a show, but it certainly is a really good time and the question is  Should you play or Not. My advice is yes.  Definitely play.  It’s a once in a lifetime experience and you can brag to all of your friends that you were part of it.  Even if you don’t like it. Don’t put it off...
