Sunday afternoon on the Savannah

You can jog, walk, shoot the breeze or just chill under the lovely flowering pouis.

Or you can stop for a icy cold coconut water. Mr. Coconut will lop the head off for you with a cutlass (machete) and you can drink it straight from the nut. After it's finished, slice in half and eat the nutritious jelly on the inside. Yum! Great after a jog or good for a quick pick me up.
Mr. Coconut seller has an interesting life. There's not much that goes on in Port of Spain that will get past the vendors around the savannah. Just a stone's throw away, you can find the oyster vendors with their aphrodisiac molluscs served up in a spicy cocktail sauce.
