This March, we went to Trinidad and Tobago. It was just lovely - the wildlife, the people, and the food! We were amazed at the colorful birds, the abundance of fresh fruit, and the delicious fish. Our family relaxed, learned more about the islands, toured the asphalt lake, and swam, swam, swam. Come join us as we share our photos with you!

Earlier this year, some of our family stayed in Trinidad, at a wonderful Eco-Inn. I was so impressed with the photos and stories they shared that I contacted the owners of the Le Grande Almandier Inn, to find out more for our Wandering Educators.  I was lucky enough to talk with Wendy James, who is now our Trinidad & Tobago Editor! Here's what Wendy had to say...

WE:  Please tell us about your inn, Le Grande Almandier...
