Monday - Got up at 5:00 a.m. and took off for Trinidad at 7:00 a.m. Trip was uneventful and got there in some 5 hours. So we are now in the tropics - guess I expected too much for I am disappointed. The only evidence of tropical (my tropical) lands is the dense jungle or under-brush.  The town, Port of Spain, is too far so my observations are merely from Waller Field.. There is not a thing to do here but fly and drink. The shows are at least 2 years old and "B" pictures at that. The natives are black as all hell. Had a leak in wing tank but that is being repaired.

Our first ship is down here waiting for an engine change, but otherwise our flight is intact.
