We are finishing up in Trinidad now. All the maintenance has been done, we have bought enough food and diesel to last for a good few weeks, and we have our visa's for the French islands.
Yesterday we hired a car again and took a long drive around the west side of the island - from Chagauramas up to the northern beaches of Las Cuevas and Blanchiossuse, down to Arima and back again, through Port of Spain back to the boat. The area is heavily forested and the roads in pretty bad condition, so it was quite an adventure. Nearly ran out of fuel too. I have attached a map showing the north west of Trinidad.
We stopped for lunch to have "Bake & Shark" - which is quite delicious fried hammerhead shark on a bun - that is more like vetkoek. They serve all sorts of extras from lettuce, tomato and cucumber to garlic and hot sauce, and the lovely shadowbenny herb sauce.
We drove over this amazing spring bridge through the jungle.
