Description: Krusten always dreamed about going to the Caribbean on vacation. Her travel agent recommended Trinidad so she decided to see what it is like. She hopes to see the beaches, relax and have a nice time.
After a long day Krusten is beat, she looks forward to getting up to her room and taking a cool shower. She also takes an antacid because of all the junk food she ate. She never eats like that at home but did it mostly to be courteous to her host. She admits to herself that she was curious about how it all tasted and would of been angry at herself to come all this way and not try it.
Calling up Krusten at her hotel: "Hey girl, are you still in town, maybe we should get together and do something but this time you can come to my pad (Thread) and we'll see what we can do."
"Oh my goodness!" Yes that will be the best. I was kind of getting bored with the hotel seeing the same thing although one of the guys here is kind of cute. I want to see something new though." She chuckles and then asks for the time so she can get ready.
Chick returns the laugh about the cute guy and Krusten's needing to see something new.
"I'll be there shortly. We'll make a stop at my place so you can see where I live and then we'll start checking out some more places."
While driving from Port of Spain towards the east we pass through the Betham. Knowing its not the best of places Chick says,
"This is the Betham landfill. Its where a lot of the refuse is buried or burnt. Across from it people live and make their trade in there. Its one of the least affluent places in the country and definitely not a tourist attraction.
"I understand… there are places like that all over the world but its amazing to me that people can earn a living from rummaging through other people's waste. I can't imagine anything like that being healthy."
