I love Carnival!!. Trinidad's carnival! Once a year my senses rejoice at the opportunity to douse my soul with intoxicating soca music, shed my cares and fears, and temporarily transfer my spirit into the mas. (S. Drakes)

Crop over Reminisce pt 2 -Kadoment day

Well the pics speak for themselves, those were taken on kadoment day in barbados crop over 2k6, as stated in the other post we stormed the people band!!, offical drinks cup and all!!. If you look carefully in some of the pics you will realise that we are inside of the ropes .We used our band from some of the other fetes to merge into baje even though we were in plain clothes.

Why do the bajan girls wear slippers while play mas? A flip flop and a custume? Very unappealing!!. I must say the men were a site to see, it seems like the gym is a popular thing with them, most of them have real cuts…psst...pssst darkie!!. but the face on the other hand is another story. But ah doh watch face only waist,I love to see them wuk up.

The drinks on the road also sucked ..up to now I didn't see a premium drink.. no baileys! or no Johnny! how can u play mas with out johnny?.. trust me .. me and johnny we had alot of ‘walks” in the past few years. Is a good thing we walked with our vital supply.

For the frist time i saw a christian mas band…they were walking about in some thing looking like a minshell custume. they were jumping to the sounds of gospel throught out the streets, they weren’t wuking up

Lots of trinis where there it was almost like an invasion, this included me and my crew of twelve .. it was a great experience..cah wait til next year!!. I need a woman by myside.. down the road..

icah wait for me Crop Over is not expensive. When January rolls around tickets to Barbados are around $100.00US coming from Trini, but with World Cup next year I think air fare might remain high until after April.There are so many guest houses to choose from for around $75.00US a night (cheaper if you are sharing with friends)that accomodation is affordable, we usually go from the Thursday till the next Tuesday, 5 nights but next year I want to spend a week, Wednesday to Wednesday (if I end up going).

Fetes are not too bad depending on which ones you go to, the boat cruise is about $50.00US and is a not to be missed does a crop overpackage and you can get the fete tickets from them...about 3 or 4 fetes for $120.00US including caution, Baje Fete, Boat Cruise and a next one (cyar remember).

The BEST thing for me is after feteing you can catch up on some sleep on a beautiful beach :D

I don't want to sound like a chupidee but what month Crop Over in? I think its over summer? July/Aug? If so I'll have to arrange a holiday to Trini round my b'day time, then go over for a few days.
I wonder if I'll ever get that term time contract at work boy?
