I miss the variety of Western food. Hearing the English language and not seeing the many different nationalities one finds in a Cosmopolitan city in the US.

Of course I’ll miss my family and friends, but I’m assuming you’re talking about aspects of the country as a whole. I love my country and I can answer from experience: 1. I’d miss the easy-going nature of the people in my country. Every race and religion are living together in harmony and you don’t see the kind of stereotyping and animosity that you see in other parts of the world. 2. I’d miss the food! You can get all sorts of food well seasoned and cooked here. Chinese, Indian, Creole, and unique delicious local dishes are popular. It’s difficult to find the right ingredients in another country for most of the dishes, and there are very few restaurants that serve Trinidadian dishes. 3. Finally; Carnival. Every year around February there is a major costumed street party in Trinidad that lasts about three days (not counting the many parties, concerts and “fetes” leading up to the main event). It’s like a cultural highlight because the costumes are very artistic and have been featured worldwide. Some of our costume designers have done opening ceremonies for the Olympics and World Cup etc. I love Carnival, and I really missed it when I went away.
