A Trinidad Moment

Power Boats, Chaguaramas - a view from our galley

Recieved a message from the boat yard that our mail had arrived, at last. We are expecting some important, time sensitive, documents.

In the office waiting for us is a registered envelope from the Trinidad & Tobago Post Office. Inside is a Parcel Notification. Our documents are held at "The Tackle Shop" in Carenage. Even though the documents are addressed c/- Power Boats, Chaguaramas.

All we need to do is catch the bus to "The Tackle Shop" pay $26.75TT postage plus a customs inspection fee of $100TT and we get our mail. Maybe I will pick up some fishing tackle while I am there.

I am now seeing why it is a popular request on the morning net to send mail via cruisers traveling out of the country. Don't expect postcards from Trini!
