Snapshots of Tobago, The Quiet Caribbean.

Tobago is a small quiet Caribbean island, physically separate from Trinidad, but part of the same country – Trinidad and Tobago, where calypso and the steel drums began.

I read somewhere that Trinidad and Tobago is good for mud spas – I didn’t really come across this but I can confirm that Tobago is an ideal island for relaxation, bird watching, rainforest hiking and beach lounging.

At certain time of the year, in line with breeding cycles, turtle watching becomes a major attraction in Tobago.

Flea Market

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Enter If you blink you miss it!!
The flea market is pretty much hidden in plain sight, busy in the night and bursting with goods for sale – from DVD, clothes, shoes and other random bits.
It’s open until 11pm so shopper holies needn’t feel deprived after dark!
Not sure if this is quite bright enough!!
