Trinidad has grown on me!
Now that I spend less time slaving away in the yards of Chaguaramas and more time out and about, I’m content. It turns out that organising pre-rally seminars is even more fun than I had previously imagined… I’m in my element… Honestly… Just look at how much fun everyone is having.
This year, not only did we have a Guyanese delegation, but not to be out-done, the French came too! Even if only 3% of the people present understood what they had to say. Perhaps it was the free beer I offered to lure the audience there in the first place that was to blame (rather than any language difficulty)!
No matter, we had it all translated to English just to make sure.
The most difficult part of the whole affair was picking up the television for the delegations power point presentation.
You may recall that last year I had to purchase a new 40 inch TV for the show, and I’d given it away, but on the condition that I could use it again this year.
So far so good. The only trouble was that the family I’d given it to live in Arima. Not only is this a long drive from Chaguarams but…
Late at night… white man in Arima… leaving locals house…. with their TV in tow….
I felt a little conspicuous to say the least, but it was all for a good cause and I can add that the TV was brought back to where it now belongs pronto!
Maybe they will even let me borrow it again next year.
