Carnival is Here
Posted on February 17, 2016
This year I was much more an observer than a participant. My Jouvert band is parked up as I’m working on something else I had the opportunity to take it all in.
I’d talk more about the entire Carnival season in another blog post. For now, lets talk about Carnival Monday and Tuesday. Monday afternoon I hit the streets, significantly more organised than previous years. Rolling with Monique and Tenja, who kept my equipment safe and ensured that everything I needed was available.
This year I spent my time on the road with Bliss Carnival and I only realised this when I reviewed my footage to edit that I was one of the the youngest persons in the entire band. lol! I couldn’t tell on the road because these masqueraders jumped, waved and skipped like everyone was 18 years old!
I’m talking about Mom’s belly button was pierced and she was gyrating low to her favourite songs. Altogether my experience was different but still very enjoyable!
