Trinidad & Tobago

Trinidad is linked to palm trees, beach and sea.
In fact there is also a lot of industry on the main island Trinidad.
Tobago is more or less a holiday island.

The living standard is lower compared to european or american standards, but oil is an important source.
Not everybody can benefit. Many people live under poor conditions.
Sugar cane is another important export good.

The climate is very humid and not really convenient for europeans. A photo cannot show this.


There are only 3 places on our planet with tar lakes just like here in south-west Trinidad. Visitors should be accompanied by guides when walking on the lakes in order not to sink.
If so, tar is an ideal conversation stuff...


Many Indians came to Trinidad during the last 150 years. They also brought their culture like burning their dead relatives.
