“What do we want?”

“Village cricket!”

“When do we want it?”


The coincidence was finding Flickr co-ordinates for the writer, editor, media producer and thought leader from Trinidad and Tobago – Georgia Popplewell.   A judicious and propitious name?

WARNING: readers should apply Factor 50 and put on their Ray Ban Wayfarers before exposing themselves to the images from Georgia’s caribbeanfreephoto’s photostream above and below.

If this doesn’t work, it could mean emigration.
