Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AFP): Trinidad and Tobago celebrated Saturday as the country’s team made their debut on the World Cup stage with a nil-nil draw against Sweden.

Supporters ran into the street as the referee’s whistle blew after the last seconds of the game, as if Trinidad had won the World Cup title.

One ecstatic female fan said, “This was what they needed. If they carry the same energy, the same spirit, the same drive, this should carry them through.”

Traffic snarled into and away from the nation’s capital, Port-of-Spain, 30 minutes before the game, as fans hustled to reach to their game destination.

Alcohol was sold out in many stores, while local beer companies hosted World Cup games at popular bars where gargantuan projector screens were set up for supporters.

While most vehicles were marked with Trinidad flags, the official team jerseys — mainly those belonging to midfielder Dwight Yorke and to the “Little Magician” who has yet to make his appearance, Russel Latapy — were sold out.
