Trinidad and Tobago
Two small islands that have made a big contribution to world culture. I lived there in the early 1970's, for four years. This link will take you to a page of nostalgic symbols, and then a few photos from a recent trip.

It's really in the northeastern corner of South America, (bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Venezuela, Brazil, and Surinam) but culturally, it is more closely related to the Caribbean.

I spent four days in Guyana in January, 2002, and fell in love with it! This is a link to a page of photos from that trip.
