Carnival

Well Carnival in Trinidad...this week has been hectic. I am not much for the fetes ( big open air parties with lots of people,food and drinks) but I do get into the music(soca) and the various competitions and so on.It is just in the air all this week...the excitement is so evident you can almost taste it.Everyone looks tired but happy. No one really sleeps this last week; a lot of people don't go to work or go in late. And it's allowed because it's carnival week or 'las' lap'.I have a friend who came into the country just for carnival so although I am not going much of anywhere since I am still working,I have been trying to organise for her to get to places.She has been having a blast.On Monday and Tuesday are the big parade of bands days.It's all amazing...very colourful and quite spectacular...If you haven't seen it,you should,at least once in your life.
