This week we were on a spectacular Central Safari!
It’s almost impossible to believe that we have miles and miles of thriving wetlands that are home to the silky anteater, caimans and iguanas, oysters, crabs, lightning bugs and, of course, our national bird, the beautiful scarlet ibis, which was the inspiration for our craft project this week.

Scarlet Ibis & Flamingo Art Supplies

We had a lovely yoga session with Xo Sport and also learned about the famous Hanuman Murti, which got us in the perfect frame of mind for another Bollywood dance class with Melissa from Natraj Dance Group.

Wrapping up the week, we made fantastic rangoli craft using paper plates and coloured paper, paint and sequins.
We definitely couldn’t leave without visiting the beautiful Temple in the Sea, and our friends at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Company shared an inspiring local film by the same name about the indentured labourer who built it.
