    This should be well-taken note of. The curfew states “temporary”. I wonder how long this curfew will last?
    On my next visit to Dominica, I am hoping to travel to T & T to visit my relatives and friends.
    On the other hand, traveling during a curfew may be a good thing. Trinidad should now be a safer place to travel during the curfew.
    Note how criminals and their evil activities could hold a country and its people hostage and create inconvenience for them. I pray that something is done to eradicate the type of criminals which T & T has. No exception Jamaica.
    Having stated that, may the government and police authorities of Dominica and the other smaller islands do their best to eradicate criminal activities. Those are a menace to our society.
    May God bless all the authorities of those islands and their efforts and assist them accordingly.

    Some Trini jokers say God is a Trini. I never uderstood why they did given the killing fields and chaos which Trini has been forever think of the 1970 and 1990 bloody coups and the thousands brutally murdered in just a few years. Trini living in fools paradise. Its the devil who is trini.

    My suggestion, if you have to get to Trinidad, do so before 9:00pm, or just don’t travel until this curfew thing is lifted. Too much melee in that island.
