Dear Cathy, Clyde and Baby,
What can we say? We had a truly very special time with you. We felt at home from the beginning and we think this was the perfect ... view more place for us. Thank you so much for allowing us to experience and live the rich Trinidad culture. It was amazing to meet Clyde and the other musicians and to feel their love and passion for music and life. A real positive vibe and very contagious we felt here. We will take calypso and pan music with us to Portugal and spread this special rhythm.

Thank you for the wonderful food you cooked for us. You are an amazing cook. Thank you also for your smile and for letting us feel that you were always there for us. Thank you Clyde for blessing us with your music. It meant a lot to us and it was an honor to meet you.

Cathy, thank you for so much. We were very lucky to find you and you are most welcome in Portugal. We really must say that we leave Trinidad feeling more spiritually and culturally richer and stronger and these will be part of us now.
