Quoting MASSAGEUK

tallbird - I use to have 'trinidad & tobago' under my name on this boards - it sounds so exotic and unnationalistic (2 coutries in one - mind boggles).

I have never been there and only have a very vague idea where this country migh be

only recently I have reverted to the old boring 'uk' - for a very practical reasons

T'n'T (as it is know as over here) is the Southern most Caribbean republic made up of the two islands (Trinidad and Tobago). Its very close to Venezuela (only about 12km away) and consists of nice beaches, rainforest and hills (not your average Caribbean island). Very pretty though! I really like it here!

Although do miss the hustle and bustle of good old London occassionally!

sounds like a nice place to live - do they even bother with an anthem?

Indeed! Their Anthem is:

Forged from the love of Liberty

Forged from the Love of Liberty
in the Fires of Hope and Prayer
with boundless faith in our destiny
We solemnly declare

Side by Side we stand
Islands of the blue Caribbean Sea
This our native land
we pledge our lives to thee

Here every creed and race find an equal place
And may God bless our nation

Here every creed and race find an equal place
And may God bless our nation.

They sing it to the steelpan drums, which is quite cool.Although even with that it still manages to sound quite militaristic.

greatly disappointed with their sense of a modern world we live in now.

play drum (& bass) and dance - leave singing to elderly folks
