The Queen’s Park Savannah: heart of a city

The Queen's Park Savannah is the heart and lungs of the Trinidad and Tobago capital, Port of Spain. A huge open space between downtown and the Northern Range, it is the favourite haunt of joggers and walkers, footballers and cricketers, connoisseurs of coconuts, roast corn and oysters, skateboarders and kite- flyers. A former sugar estate preserved for the people, the Savannah is to Port of Spain what Central Park is to New York. Marlon Rouse captures some of its many moods

St Pierre: mountain of death

Once, St Pierre was a centre of French elegance and pleasure, the pride of the French Caribbean, “the Paris of the Antilles”. But one morning the mountain behind the town blew apart, wiping out the town and killing almost all its 30,000 people. James Ferguson revisits the volcano, exactly 100 years on
