I'm back

View from the bedroom window early this morning.

Got to Tobago late last night (left on the 9:20 p.m. flight). We spent the night here. It's very simple, rustic, woody and natural, like living in little tree houses. We went to sleep very late, but I woke up early as usual ... maybe around 3 or 4 a.m. (?) It was freezing cold (due to being up on a height in the bush), still pitch black outside and took what felt like ages to get light. When dawn broke, the cocricos right outside the window were LOUD. Great starting the day so close to nature.
Each room has a little balcony ... shrouded by large trees

Off to an early start ... interesting work in Charlotteville. Synchronicity's first job. Short and sweet. Left Tobago on the 3 p.m. flight. For those who don't know, it takes twenty minutes to fly from Tobago to Trinidad - sister isles. (Or you can go by fast ferry, which takes two hours).

Flying back into Trinidad, I was observing the different aspects of the landscape.
We've got mountains ...
Swamps and rivers ...
Plains ...
Concrete ...

Hey, a Cocrico looks a lot like the Chachalacas I saw in Mexico. They are loud, too.
