Congrats! Congrats to our first woman President. What an historic moment.

The focus is now on Her Excellency Paula-Mae Weekes and judging from all the comments that I have heard over the past few weeks, she is definitely the person for the job.

We were about to travel to Tobago for our usual Easter vacation when the ferry fiasco occurred—again.
