Talkin’ Trini

I’am finin’ at I’m talkin’ a little wit a Trini accent dees deys. Whether of Indian, African or European background, Trini folks with a European background have a pretty tough accent to comprehend. I think it’s gonna take awhile before conversations with the locals cease to be peppered with “what?”s.

As an addition to yesterday’s entry, here are a couple more lessons:
Lesson #4 — J24 sailors are the same everywhere.
Lesson #5 — People from Barbados are called Bajans.

Oh, and John’s goat curry rocks. Earthier than chicken, but pretty islandy and yummy when you give it a chance.



  1. Lara,
    Jason’s pics didn’t come through. Do you know what email address he sent them to? We are excited to see what you see. Thanks

    • We had a little trouble uploading all the images so we had to do a little work to make them smaller and didn’t get them all uploaded until late. Check my latest post for the address to the new picture site. Love ya, J

  2. Ymmmm! goat!! get used to it, you’ll be seeing a lot I’ll bet. Maybe the fish spine was for the cat? naaah, prolly soup. Photos exxxxcellent, too bad ya had to shrink wrap them, telephoto close ups would be awesome. Quite a show.

  3. How’s your yummy tummy doin?

  4. Looks like your doing well, and your having a great time. I’ll be looking to see what you do in Panama.
