And we know people luv to throw water so it was best to bring my waterproof camera even though it doesn’t capture the best images. I was able to capture a few half way decent pictures for my library.

When I’ve played mas in the past I never get to see the other bands because Im with my band ALL day & by the time we pass the judges, eat & rest for a few all the other bands have split up. This year I was determined to see EVERYTHING. I ran to the back of the parade line while stopping to dance, record & photograph all the beautiful masqueraders, then came back to my band to drink and dance. Then I ran to the front while stopping to dance, record & photograph all the beautiful masqueraders, then came back to my band to drink and dance. While I love love love all the beautiful, barely there costumes & admiring the creativeness of each band, the thing I love the most about carnival is the steel pan & all the children in their costumes, both really touch my heart.

|If ya holdin the traffic... let it go|
|Judging lasted into the night *uugghh* and I didnt have the energy to stand around that long... lo siento|
I soaked up alot of sun after dancing in the blazing heat for 8 hours carnival Sunday & I managed to hit the beach & pool several times during my trip which was great since its getting cold back home in Atlanta, but not so great in the aspect that I don’t tan well. Now I just look dirty, like that kid Pig Pen in the Peanuts Gang. Maybe I can just tell people that I’m from New Jersey, orange people are “in” up there right?
Now if I can only make Trinidad carnival happen... anyone want to buy a kidney or raggedy liver?!?! I must say that there is nothing I enjoy more than playin mas. Such a great feeling dancing all day with friends & family & stopping for hugs with everyone that has your flag.
