We made it folks, we got through Christmas, New Years and now finally, Carnival. I don’t know about you but I am relieved because we can finally focus on what is going to be one of the most important years for us here in Trinidad and also the Caribbean. We are in the midst of our e-commerce revolution here in Trinidad & Tobago and it really hit me in one of the unlikeliest places, a fete.
Specifically, Kes Tuesday. While relaxing with my cousins and enjoying the energy inside the Queens Park Savannah, I decided to purchase a beverage and was a bit shocked when they asked me “how would I be paying?”. I was shocked because I didn’t know I had a choice, it has always been cash only at every single event since I moved to Trinidad a few years ago. Heck, I even ensured to take out enough money so that I didn’t run out of drinking money and have to be sober for the night.
