Market Day

Chaguaramas Bay, Trinidad
10 40.6N 61 38.3W

We celebrate the end of the working week with a few rums, but can't have too many as Saturday is market day, or more accurately Saturday morning at 6am is market day. We catch the maxi taxi into town and have a fabulous hour or so wandering among the stalls at the huge market.

Colourful food and colourful locals make for a great trip and the prices are superb, fresh tuna $2 a pound, steak $3 a pound and huge avocados 50 cents each. This plus fresh herbs, spices and "organic" fruit and veg mean we are eating like kings and spending like paupers.

Work is going well and we are hoping to have the davits installed in a few weeks which will free us up to explore and use the boat.
