DAY FIVE: SUNDAY 9/10
I took a Maxi Taxi to Saint Augustine by myself Sunday night.
I was greeted at my destination by philosopher and chantwelle, Burton Sankarelli. Burton is one of Trinidad's great talents and thinkers. I am proud to call him a friend, by way of my husband. I attended an open mic at a bar called Trevor's Edge; and Burton introduced me to all the performers (he was on the bill as well) and their guests. An intimate venue with spoken word and acoustic music has always been my thing. "Songshine." The name has a special ring to it. This stick in the mud (me) stayed and "limed" with the local performers, exchanging great conversation (and Carib beer).
To artistic exchange, networking and new friends!
