Notes:
The small-gauge track is on the pitch lake, with workers digging up chunks of asphault and transferring it by the cars that resemble those in an underground mine. The 'Gle Gle' reference recalls the Carib Indians. A few years ago, a 'Carib canoe' trip from Dominica (between Martinique and Guadeloupe) to Trinidad and on to Guyana was filmed.
