Fight Of The Lion And The Rhino.
So glad we don’t have hurricanes in the Netherlands, I imagine that would be bad news for all of us living on reclaimed land.
It would have flooded out here, as we are under the sea level, a scary idea indeed, while I was relieved we are not in the hurricane corridor, I was concerned for friends who were.
I have heard from a few, that they are alright, I also heard from one, Tracey’s Life that she and her family had to evacuate and yesterday she could still not return home.
I hope Tracey can go home soon; today would be very good for them, sadly I can’t find Tracey on Face Book or in the blog sphere.
Maybe she will be in touch soon, hopefully Tracey will have better news then, yesterday I got also got a comment from my Trini friend Rhapsody about Trinidad.
I looked at Google news as well as Trinidad newspapers; I read that there was a curfew because of gang warfare.
Then I phoned my lovely cousin Aileen in San Fernando, Trinidad and spoke to Philip, Aileen’s husband, he told me that the curfew was to stop the gangs.
Real shame they banned cannabis and thereby allowed Trinidad to be used as a hub for cocaine trafficking.
Horrible that this paradise should be spoiled by that drug, the good thing was that I had a lovely phone call with Aileen and Philip, and my own Trini accent came back after just two words with Philip.
Seems I could be taken away from Trinidad but Trinidad cannot be taken from me, I am still Trini to the core.
