Port of Spain, Trinidad -- April 6, Wednesday morning -- Reading The Bible

In Woodford Square in downtown Port of Spain, Trinidad, in front of the Parliament building
Reading the book of Ezekiel in The Bible. When I asked him to tell me more he said that a relationship with God is the most important thing.

He also recommended Patriarchs and Prophets, by Ellen White and Desire of Ages: The Conflict of the Ages Illustrated in the Life of Christ, by the same author.

If he were to write his own book, it would be about growing up in Laventille, a poor community just east of Trinidad's capital city, and then moving to Columbia and the United States to work for oil companies before returning home to Trinidad. I asked him what Laventille was like when he was young, but he just shrugged.

After we finished talking I crossed the street and went inside the Parliament Building. In the rotunda area was a large flat screen tv and on it, was the TV program, Dancing with the Stars. I thought what?! They're showing Dancing with the Stars inside the Parliament building?! But, then I realized it was just the news, which included a clip of Dancing with the Stars.

Also in the rotunda area was a display of books, which included Eric Williams, the Myth and the Man, by Selwyn Ryan (Eric Williams was Trinidad and Tobago's first Prime Minister, from 1956 until he died in 1981.); Forged from the Love of Liberty: Selected Speeches of Dr. Eric Williams (the title of the book is also the name of the National Anthem); History of the People of Trinidad and Tobago, by Dr. Eric Williams; and Makers of the Caribbean, by James Ferguson; and History or Myth: the Making of Dancing with the Stars, by Kamla Persad-Bissessar...just kidding about the last one. Kamla Persad-Bissessar is actually the current Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago. She is the seventh and first female Prime Minister of the country.
