Sunday World Culture
Monday January 30, 2006, 5:44 AM
Yesterday was Sunday here in Chaguaramas, Trinidad and me and Craig went into the city of Port of Spain to look for a Hotel. The present Hotel the Cove in Chaguaramas is too far from the city to purchase Airplane Tickets, more or less to do the busy duties of arranging to leave. We can lower the cost of the room from 25 Dollars per person in the Cove in Chaguaramas to 15 if we move there.
Sunday is the day off in most countries, even in the Islamic countries where Friday is more of a religious day the work will slow or stop on Sunday. I have not monitored this closely however Sunday is the normal day off from work, however I found Port of Spain interesting as the place died in the center of the city, I am not sure if the Malls were closed or open, however, the center of the city was empty. Craig said it was Sunday, I was explaining when you travel you still need to live on Sunday, buy food, walk around, entertain yourself.
There are only small windows of time in Chaguaramas to use the internet, from 8:00 in the morning to 5:00 in the afternoon. This is not normal internet hours for much of the planet; I can normally always go to the internet up to at least 10:00 at night.
Europe will close up shop and never work in some countries, it is amazing how they make laws to stop person from working. The USA closes on Sunday in most ways however, the Gas, Food, and other types of needed shopping is open. The idea of 24 hours Wal-Mart has not caught on in the world yet.
