Helen's Journey to Trinidad & Tobago

Current Location

Siparia Trinidad

Hi everyone! I'm so glad you're joining me in Trinidad & Tobago and I study water quality in recreational bodies of water. Let's learn more about this unique island culture together!


This week, I attended a Diwali festival in the south of Trinidad in a city called Siparia. It was interesting to see how people in the south of Trinidad differed from those in the north where I live. 


I have just begun my work here in Trinidad. I am getting settled in and making new friends. Adjusting to the lifestyle and culture here takes a lot of patience and flexibilty. 

Field Notes

KFC is extremely popular in Trinidad. I have heard people talk about how much they love their fried chicken. I had to see what all the hype was about, so I finally went and tried it!


This album is all about my life! The important people, pets, and interests.
