The annual sojourn to Trinidad and Tobago for most visitors and returning nationals is due to the allure of Carnival. Those involved in the arts come to refresh their ideas, others come to temporarily escape the daily work routine and some, like me, mix both with having a great time just liming with the people.
This year we decided to mingle with the bands, the players and their friends on the road. The stage is the show for the spectators. On the road the players indulge in their own personal party experience. Thank you to those who let me gatecrash! Yuma, Tribe, Trini Revellers, Harts (Drinks Cart 3 thanks for the rum concoction) and Bliss.
