Trinidad & Tobago: All Souls Day

Categories: Caribbean, Trinidad & Tobago, Environment, History, Religion

“Lapeyrouse Cemetery has fallen into disrepair over the last half a century; a severe indictment on a society that allows its dead to languish in squalour. But on this afternoon in November, all is well…a reassuring reminder that our dead live within us and not alone in the dusty vaults and crypts of a decaying cemetery”: Trinidadian blogger Sharon Millar [1] observes All Souls Day.
