Say Yes To Strangers

Becky Blank

Becky was in a steelpan band in her college days. Knowing that the steelpan originated in Trinidad and Tobago, some of the band members decided to take a trip to the island. Mixing it up with the locals led to island weed, discovering mom's ashes, and a bomb-like device in an airport.
