Wowzas. Lady Chancellor is NO JOKE. Glen (Corey’s husband) dropped us off at the bottom of the beast before he went to work (thank you, Glen!).
When we started to climb I was all like “NO BIGGIE. I GOT THIS.” Yeah…no. This Lady Chancellor hill is quite deceiving. It was a two-mile trek up the hill climbing over 600 feet. Thankfully most of it was shaded because if it wasn’t I’m pretty sure I would have melted into a puddle. Trinidad is hot alllllll day long but funny fact: every restaurant, store, condo, hotel, etc is FREEZING. Like I-need-three-sweaters kinda freezing. Nice change from the steamy outdoors though.
Moving on. After our hill climb/descent, we walked to get a fresh coconut. I usually hate coconut water but the fresh ones don’t even compare. It was so tasty.
We also got to visit the veggie market where they sold CRABS.
Poor little guys had their legs tied up.
We ate lunch at Chop Chops where I had roasted vegetable soup and what they call ‘salad pizza’. So good. I also tried a new to me passion fruit-flavoured ginger ale.
After spending the rest of the afternoon being lazy (i.e. watching Family Feud and eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch) we finally got ready for our big dinner date at Buzo. This was apparently my first birthday celebration (Corey has been spoiling me) because my actual birthday isn’t until Sunday and most of the “cool” restaurants aren’t open. I have no complaints. I am happy eating bananas on my birthday but Corey won’t let me.
I went with the fried mozzarella for my appetizer (so healthy) and the pumpkin ravioli with some sort of creamy butter sauce as my main (even healthier). The food was insanely delicious. The chef is from Italy and clearly knows what he is doing. I wonder if he will fit in my suitcase so I can bring him home to be my personal chef? Best food I’ve had on the island so far.
He even brought not one, but TWO desserts. The man knows the way to my heart.
Today is a pool and kayaking at sunset day. No big deal.
Would you rather be too HOT or too COLD?
If you could eat one thing on your birthday, what would it be?
