We Country

by Alloy

 



De only way to describe WE COUNTRY is.. it NICE! De ole people always teach us dat yuh must nevah overrate yusself because "pride does go before yuh fall" and all ah dat.. But putting all jokes aside, ah tink de Maker take time wen he was creating Triniland. We country ent BIG... but we have everyting, at least ah lil bit of everyting and sometings we have, yuh cyar fine no where  else! For example we have  beaches...all kind! Is sand yuh want? What color? Yuh like waves? How tall? Yuh like it calm? Ah sure dat we have a different beach for every day in de year and go have plenty lef' over to boot! If is sunset and sunrise yuh like to watch, we have dat too...Plenty!!For people who only like scenery ah tell yuh we have it all.... Landscape of all description... Endless seascape.... Landmarks like yuh never see before. Only ting is, ah hope yuh like de colour green, because dis place so green yuh would tink yuh in de Garden of Eden self! De only ting to distract yuh from de greenery is wen de trees in bloom....

For people who like  history ...we have historical sites like peas! De whole place is like a living history book. We have some odd places too... Triniland is a mix-up kinda place... some place real modern, like Port of Spain and SanFernando.... but not too far off yuh will find yusself rite back in de 19th century, jostling wid cow and donkey! A ting we have plenty of is churches... all kind! Catholic, Protestant, Hindu and Islamic. We have good educational centers too... even ah open air one! Yuh cyar talk about Triniland and leave out de people.... is here we real mix-up! WE have all kinda mix breed people here because people from all over does come and take a tayse of de Garden... and plant dey seed to boot! As yuh will realise wen dey come dey ent coming empty hand...dey bring dey music too...  influencing we own music call  Calypso and Soca!
