Trinidad: ‘Licks upon licks’ for tourism

Waterholics owner Alex Nedd has a sinking feeling inside as his savings continue to diminish as he tries to survive the covid19 pandemic.

At age 38, Nedd felt he would have still been able to develop his brand and become a key player in Tobago’s tourist sector.

But those plans were shelved, almost one month ago, when the Government announced the lockdown on non-essential activity to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Now, the affable businessman said he has to dip into his savings to get by.

“I have no choice but to go into my savings. What else?” he asked.

Even more frightening, he said, is the reality that the lockdown could extend beyond April 30.

“I don’t know how long this thing will last because I believe it could go on and on.”

Nedd established Waterholics at Pigeon Point more than a decade ago.
