Tobago Trip: Doubles

The food in Trinidad & Tobago is so tasty.  During this video segment, we tried hot doubles for the first time. I found a recipe for street doubles and may give it a try, just to see how it turns out. The short description -- it's a hot, soft bread wrapped around chickpeas, warm spices (e.g. curry, cumin), and a thick, creamy sauce which soaks into the bread. Mmmm.... you eat it sort of sideways, like a taco.

Once I tried doubles, I really was hooked and ended up craving them daily. We bought them in pairs and ate them at all times of the day and night, as often as we could find them. For only $3.00 TT (the equivalent of 50-cents USD), you could hardly beat the price.

This video -- the 5th in a series from our trip -- includes gorgeous views from Ft. James, Ft. Bennet, and Turtle Beach in Tobago.  Have you ever seen what almonds look like on the tree?  I had not... until I went to Tobago. There's also a part toward the end of the video where our drive takes an interesting right turn. 

You just have to see it to understand. *smh*
