SLIDE 👈👈👈 If a tree on a leaf is a parasite, how do you call it when it grows on a handrail?? Si una matica que nace sobre una hoja se le llama parásito, ¿cómo se le llama cuando nace en la varanda? Hay donde quiera! No les importa crecer donde sea... ay Dios, nos invaden. #BeautifulNature #MaracasValley
Ahí vienen las #Orquideas 😍 "Cuídalas, dan mucha satisfacción verlas florear" decia mi madre. #TeAmamosMamina #Orchids #MaracasValley
Visited the stunning Ortinola cocoa estate today for afternoon tea and a tour. Located in the lush and vibrant green hills of Maracas Valley, the Ortinola estate has existed since the late 1700’s. From the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s the estate was owned by the Cadbury Bros. of England and produced fine Trinidad cocoa for their confections. The great house of Ortinola was restored in the early 2000’s and was once the home of the Cadbury manager of the estate. We enjoyed tea with its unique treats like savory katchorie and cassava pone. I also got to dance on the cocoa beans, this is the traditional (only) way to polish the beans! #trinidad #ortinolaestate #cocoa #cacao #chocolate #caribbeanlife #singleestate #cadbury #britishcolonial #tea #hightea #maracasvalley #weekendvibes

This early evening I was putting back in place the hummingbird feeders when this #Pui attracted my attention at the top of the mountain in the valley. It looked as if the sun was blowing a shinning light to iluminate it alone from the other trees. It gave me a nostalgic moment to think about our dear #Venezuela and how it will also shine again... #Hope #Nostalgia #Araguaney #VenezuelaWillRise #ArbolNacionalDeVenezuela #MaracasValley #TrinidadAndTobago #IamCaribbean

Who's responsible? Residents of Maracas Valley, the Tunapuna Piarco Regional Corporation, SWMCOL? We all have a part to play. As residents, let's do better. Starting with: 1. Put out your trash as close to the scheduled pick-up as possible. This doesn't give much time for dogs and rodents to attack it. Plus, it's less of an eyesore and inconvenience for those living nearby. 2. Bag all trash. Tossing loose rubbish near the trashcan makes it impossible for the collectors to get all plus it encourages pests, and makes it easy for it to get into the waterways. Does anyone have any more suggestions? #mvac #mvac2002 #maracasvalley #modelgreenvalley #waste ##trash #wastedisposal #reduce #reuse #recycle #preserve #enhance #protect #868 #trinidad #letsdobetter #garbage #ttprc #icare
Cocoa encountered a religious hurdle in 1591, over the thorny question of whether or not the consumption of the beverage broke the Lenten fast. Lent, the period of the liturgical year leading up to Easter, is a period of prayer, penitence, alms-giving and self-denial. The Jesuits, who traded in chocolate, took a clearly practical position, contending that the ambrosial and economically profitable drink most certainly did not break the fast. By contrast, the hard-nosed Dominicans, also known as the Black Friars, took up an opposing view that such a sensual delight did not conform to the rigors of penitence and denial. With the Jesuits and the Dominicans in dispute over the role that luxurious cocoa might or might not play in the Lenten fast, the matter was taken to a higher power. And so the issue was brought before Pope Gregory XIII, who declared that drinking cocoa did not break the Lenten fast. Score one for the Jesuits and for the commerce of cocoa. Just as with coffee previously, cocoa advanced with papal approval.

Very heavy siltation in the Acono river after a light showers. Location: bridge at the Acono Water Works. While not littered with plastic bottles, this too is a type of river/water pollution. #mvac #siltation #pollution #river #riverhealth #quarrylife #rainfall #ngo #cbo #communitygroup #quarry #effluent #trinidad #maracasvalley #preserve #enhance #restore

Once guaranteed to see agouti, deer, crayfish and 'guabine' now one can be always sure to see mounds of trash at the Acono River. Let's do better to maintain & preserve this site and our valley as a whole. Tips when enjoying nature: Collect all trash that you brought. Bring an extra bag and do a mini cleanup Discourage others from littering and set a positive example. Location: Acono River, Maracas At Joseph. #preserve #enhance #restore #mvac #maracasvalley #trash #garbage #riverlime #trinidad #reduce #avoidplastics ##curryduck #bottledwater #positivevibes #sustainability #cleanup

Cocoa has been grown in Maracas Valley for hundreds of years, and while past its peak production, quite a few estates are still functioning. More to come... #chocolate #cacao #mvac #preserve #enhance #restore #trinidad #maracasvalley #sustainability #trinitario #tucuche

They are happy because mama is back home #Hummingbirds #MaracasValley #TrinidadAndTobago Tremenda Bienvenida. Veo nuevos que nunca habian venido. A preparar la cámara...! #Colibrí #Picaflor #Chupaflor #Tucusito
I arrived a few days ago again in Trinidad for the final days of my leadership retreat , I knew this month would be stressful , and a crazy time to say the least - my exercise routine has gone to the wayside the past few weeks but I told myself , you must get up and go every morning before session starts. The only place to walk here is ALL the way down the mountain and ALLLLLL the way up 😑 This morning was rough , it reminded me of my weight loss journey - at the bottom of each giant hill I had an overwhelming feeling of defeat , but once I struggled to get to the top of each one I felt VICTORIOUS. That is a feeing I never want to give up !!! #GOALS !! #dedicatedkatie #trinidadandtobago #maracasvalley
Not an expert like my father-in-law but here's a few 😬 😉 #trinidadandtobago #hummingbirds #yerette #maracasvalley
