Well Carnival Monday and Tuesday have rolled around! We were very fortunate enough to have a local school build us a float for the school parade on Carnival Monday so I spent the entire week and weekend before that organizing the logistics to get it set up in time etc. Fortunately it was all sorted the night before so I was free to enjoy "Jouvert" which is the opening of Carnival Monday and Tuesday. Essentially it is a huge street wide drinking session starting at 4am, yes you read correctly. I rocked up at 6am however to start the day. Then hitting the school parade at 10am, the school parade basically involved dancing in the street around our float while wearing a frog head piece and making sure the children with us did not die of dehydration of get too hungry. All in all an enjoyable experience! It was nice seeing the different costumes and listening to a song about a politician getting crabs played over and over again! But I was exhausted for most of it!
Here is a link to the song, which you have to hear! : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gg61pre8h88
