As an entire country rushes headlong towards the mother of all street parties, it has been  difficult impossible to think about anything other than Carnival! Love it or hate it, the energy and the excitement is unavoidable.

Carnival in T&T is so special to all ah we
Like we need blood in we vein
That's how we feel about Port-of-Spain (*capital city of Trinidad)
When the posse dem come in town
Beatin' pan and a bongo drum
Is madness everywhere
Carnival is your true freedom
Make a noise and a joyful sound and jump up in the air


Here is another video which perfectly descibes what many of us feel like doing this week.

And now having seen this, don't you think bouncy castles should be mandatory in all offices? I'm so gonna ask my boss!


  1. Ooooo, I love the first song!! At the beginning, it sounds like "Time After Time" from Cyndi Lauper. What a good song...both of them. Thanks for posting them.

    I agree about the bouncy castles. That would be fun. What does "palance" mean? Dance?

  2. Yeah to carnival - I was dancing in my chair! That song should be on everyone's alarm clock, what a great way to start the day!

  3. Hehe yes Bouncing Castles should de de rigeur in every office! :D

  4. Looks like a whole lot of fun! Enjoy!

    Oh, and bouncy castles should be mandatory in every office, obviously... ;)

  5. Awwww...Carnival is what my husband misses most about St. Croix..He still blasts the music in our living room on a Saturday morning when we are cleaning up the house..I love to see him dancing around the house! lol
