Trinidad & Tobago is my homeland - the place in which I was born and bred. I know its ways well, and yet, I do not know it very well. There are parts of this twin island state that are truly foreign to me, despite the fact that I have spent the better portion of my life within its boundaries. I guess this is true of most Trinbagonians: we know our country, but only to the extent that it exists within our immediate space. So, as a 'town chile' who grew up on the hills which surround the capital, I've decided to finally go past the lighthouse that marks the end of Port of Spain, and venture into the rest of the country.
