near Iere, Princes Town (Republic of Trinidad and Tobago)

This driving and walking combination trail starts outside of Princes' Town in Iere Village. It traverses the Naparima-Mayaro Road into Princes' Town walking. From here it travels along the Sir Solomon Hochoy Highway into Port-of-Spain. A walk through the Brian Lara Promenade and the Port-of-Spain waterfront is done. This stroll through Port-of-Spain is trivial but I have always found it to be much better to do that early morning. This way one can escape the traffic and pedestrian chaos that is downtown Port-of-Spain during peak daylight hours. From Port-of-Spain I ventured to the University of the West Indies St. Augustine campus. From St. Augustine I commuted via the Priority Bus Route (P.B.R.) into the borough of Arima. There are hundreds of “maxi-taxis” that traverse this route all day long and it cost only $4.00 T.T. ($ 0.67 U.S.) one way. There are also buses that run along this route from the Public Transport Service Corporation (P.T.S.C.). The “express” fares are the same as the maxi-taxi fares and the “transit” fares are $2.50 T.T. ($0.42 U.S.) one way. Arima is usually quite busy all day long so you just have to take your chances. The borough attracts labour and shoppers from most of North-East Trinidad. From Arima I returned to the University of the West Indies and then drove back to Iere Village omitting the Port-of-Spain leg.
