I have visited and stayed on 14 Islands in the W.I. I remember keenly the King Fish and Callalou. I had them in Trinidad but also in Jamaica. And I really loved a variety of local dishes in Martinique. I guess because of the French tradition.

My wife's grandfather was a Spaniard. He emigrated to Cuba, then to America and finally settled in Port of Spain. He was an architect by trade and designed the entire Quay by the harbor. As well as the Queen's Park Hotel and the Royal Bank of Canada. He was commissioned by the latter to build branch banks in a number of the islands in those parts.

I recall keenly standing on the lawn of Queen's Park on New Year's eve. The 101-piece Pan Am Band was playing Beethoven's 9th Symphony on 'pans'. . It was a tremendously moving experience I'll never forget,

Wow, fascinating and wonderful story. I have heard of the Queens Park Hotel, never been there. Yes, steelpan is indeed very light and soulful, I can imagine how that must have sounded, in the night on such a 'grand' occasion. Wow.

Actually, my wife's grandfather was Cameroon born I think of German and Cameroon ancestry (his father was German and mother Cameroonian), British, came to Trinidad and ran a business in San Fernando.  He married an East Indian girl and settled.

My own great grandfather was a Welsh doctor who settled in Barbados. I never knew him, died before I was born, but I knew my grandfather. My father has always been fond of classical music, probably gained that from my grandfather, who was a church organist, I understand he studied music in Boston. So I do appreciate your reference to Beethoven's 9th.
