Day 8 of write 31
Remember when I said Sir Walter Raleigh came to Trinidad looking for gold. Well he discovered what he called "black gold". The rest of us call it asphalt or pitch. He discovered the Pitch Lake in south Trinidad.
The Pitch Lake in Trinidad is the largest deposit of asphalt in the world. It is the only "lake" in Trinidad. Other asphalt lakes can be found in California and Venezuela.
The ashphalt is used to pave streets locally and abroad.
It is "alive" as a few like to say since it burps and hisses and consumes anything that put on it's surface after awhile
