Tomorrow, President Obama will arrive in the neighboring island nation of Trinidad for the Summit of the Americas, and the entire Eastern Caribbean is abuzz with preparations.
I've been hanging out near the airport quite a bit over the last week (along with a decent number of equally curious spectators), watching the American military supplement their presidential transport and security operations from Grenada. The atmosphere has been rumbling in ways I don't often hear this far out in the Caribbean Sea.
West Indians as a whole are very excited to host President Obama (especially the Trinidadians). It's too bad he'll be too busy for some Bake & Shark in Maracas. :-)
