What is this?
The man in the next photo said this is Bernadine, I have great trouble understanding his English, the dialect, accent and pronunciation is to the level of difference whereby I can understand Spanish better than him. I tried to get him to write it down, he did that shrug, I quickly picked up on, and I do not believe he knows how to read. There is no value in pushing a person to write something down; you do not want to learn the reason for the hesitations. He is an obviously generous and helpful man.
He said when it was ripe; they would peel of the skins, somehow mix with Rum or something and make a drink.
This is Sandy, the owner of the Sandy Guesthouse here in Tobago, one of the best facilities I have encountered in long time. It has toilet paper and towels, cost about 20 U.S.A Dollars the wife is grumpy and impossible to understand for me, however all in all the facility is great. She is a nesting person that squats on the top floor, sort make you feel like you should leave. She moved me downstairs, gave me a TV in my new room and I can easily avoid her, the bottom rooms are better.
Tobago I believe is dangerous, more than Colombia, less than the center of Lima, nicer than Belize City by a long way, comparable is the Caye Caulker islands of Belize. There are bars on the windows and Sandy’s wife constantly wants me lock the doors. There is this constant awareness in the area that it is possible to be robbed. The - African Origin - person, the great guy, owner of the internet café asked a funny question, he said, why do all the Tourist Girls date the bums, and then nodded towards the beach area. There are many girls here from Europe and maybe America experimenting with the locals, when a person has zero commitments the truth comes out, the true person erupts. It is what is fun about coming to these countries, the observations of person showing culture without the shame constraints of their home culture.
I guess this is sheep, there are fields of sheep or goats interspersed into an area that maybe a real estate investor could believe is valuable. My guess is that any of the land in this area is over-priced and prone to some Tourist inflation values, nothing to do with real values. I could only apply some appraisal to the land here with an income approach, I would have to calculate how much money I could earn, and then back into the values.
And here in Kenya, Africa.
Funny to read post years later.
Trinidad and Tobago are still more dangerous than Africa.
Did not find Rastas in Ethiopia however found a couple in Rwanda.
A Rasta Physician...funny.
The concept of being a true rasta is racist, I do not find true rastas. I have zero respect for the Rasta culture and do my best to avoid, whenever I get near any person saying the word Rasta I think trouble.
Sorry Doc, you can pretend all you want and be as literate as you want. The Rasta does not represent and is not an image of trust and dignitybto the majority of people on the planet.
Real life is real, not what you want.
Andy in Kenya where people with dreada are the bums.
