Beautiful honu (Hawaiian for sea turtle)!!!  The lady at the shelter will be moved to tears that you did this for her. I'm teary eyed just thinking about it.

You are a good man.

The crime in Trinidad can often be terrible in many places, so just stay aware, and keep your wits about you. I find a good dose of common sense generally does the trick.

Trinidad is a beautiful country and the majority of people there are wonderful. How I miss having doubles for breakfast, and the roti and curries are delicious!  :licklips: Just watch out for the bones in the 'chainsaw' chicken!   ;D
