Enter these small shops located around Trinidad and Tobago and you may see a hand painted sign that reads; Don’t ask for Mr. Credit, I heard he dead. Behind these wire cages and the wooden slots small enough for the proprietor to pass a block of blue soap through, there is always a large calender with the face of Jesus or the Lion of Judah to give the shop its own sense of identity.
