502 – Trinidad and Tobago: Where East Meets West

The island of Trinidad and its small companion, Tobago, form the most ethnically diverse nation in the Caribbean and are home to an extraordinary variety of wildlife species. We sample Trinidadan food with its strong East Indian roots, and are reminded of African traditions as we watch stilt walkers practicing and steel bands rehearsing. We hear the haunting calls of oilbirds and watch leatherback sea turtles exavating their massive beachside nests.
