“I’m just back from six nights at Ajoupa Gardens, Chicklands... It’s a perfect spot for any writer to knuckle down and get some words written. Comfortable, quiet, panoramic views, much actual space to get head space and the right kind of solitude out in rural Central Trinidad. I had a very productive week - and of course, Rory and Bunty O’Connor are the perfect hosts and are there if you need them. Lulu the cat and Dingo the dog were part of the week too, amiable companions. I highly recommend this spot for any poet or author who needs a quiet place to write.”

 

- Monique Roffey, Author, ‘The White Woman on the Green Bicycle’
