Talking about Trinidad and Tobago

What season do you prefer? Teacher Teenesha asked me.
Summer - I answered.
Here, in my country Trinidad and Tobago, summer is every day - she replied.

Trinidad and Tobago is a country which is located geographically in South America close to Venezuela. But it is not the Spanish-language country, people use there only English. After 200 years under British rule, people who came to this country forgot other languages (Indians don't speak Hindi for example). When I asked teacher which language does she use in her family, she answered - only English. Even her great father spoke English.

The population of Trinidad and Tobago is very diverse. People of different races white and black, Indian, African, European, American - they came to the country long time ego and peacefully live together.

The island Trinidad is more suitable the business.

Port of Spain, also written as Port-of-Spain and known in Spanish as "Puerto España", is the capital city of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.

Trinidad and Tobago is very developed country. The economy of the country bases on the Oil and Gas industry. BP Trinidad and Tobago is one of the leading oil and gas production companies in Trinidad and Tobago. Asphalt industry in Trinidad is also very important.

The Pitch Lake is the largest and most significant pitch lake in the world. The liquid asphalt is black and viscous, but the surface is semisolid, and can be walked on.

Trinidad and Tobago is the third richest country by GDP  per capita in the Americas after the United States and Canada.Wikipedia.

Healthcare there is completely free (no insurance forms)
Education up to high school is also free. As a sign of the country wealthy, the teacher told the every student can take a free laptop. The government assumed the cost of college tuition during the time when Teenesha studied there and now it there is no tuition.
Teenesha described inhabitants as easy going people who like organizing carnivals, they are very laid back. The Trinidad and Tobago Carnival is an annual event. The event is well known for participants' colorful costumes and exuberant celebrations. The carnival is held from February to March.

The country is located the Caribbean region. The Caribbean region includes three parts: English, French and Dutch Caribbean. Trinidad and Tobago represents the English part.

There are many beautiful beaches with yellow and white sand

Next tourist attraction is coral riffs

Tourists expect meeting with nature. And they can find untouched nature in the island Tobago. Waterfall is one of them. Bird sanctuaries are next.The country has some locations where giant turtles lumber onto the beach at night to lay their eggs. Some tourists agencies organize nightly trips to the beaches during the season. As Teenesha said they are like a car in size!
