Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar made her first public appearances in New York, USA, on Friday evening shortly after arriving from Trinidad and Tobago, making stops in Brooklyn and Queens.
The atmosphere was markedly different at the two events, but her message was the same: her Government serves all the people.
First stop was at Pfizer Auditorium at Polytechnic Institute of New York University, where close to 100 guests were on-hand for a symposium. The Prime Minister addressed questions about crime and education, before moving on to the Maracas nightclub where pensive concerns gave way to a raucous celebration. Several hundred supporters greeted her, some waving flags and holding her photo.
