Trini Tuesday-Is Carnival!

Enjoy the sights and sounds. If you don't have time to watch everything now, come back a few times or just play it in the background. I dare you not to want to wine dem hips.

Video from Carnival 2005



More Carnival footage with soundtrack of a medley of artists. this one shows a little bit of everything from J'ouvert (predawn hours of Carnival Monday) to Ash Wednesday. I explained very briefly about the Carnival events last year.



A bit more with the sounds of the street.

Happy Trini Tuesday.
I like the 2nd video the best because all the women look hot in their outfits.
I'm always amazed at the people walking on those tall stilts.Wow!

Woohoo, Trinis know how to party!

I posted a video of a lion dance we attended in Hong Kong today. When Carnival and Chinese New Year fall together, half the world celebrates.

So, are you suppose to say,
"Next year in Trinidad" ?
Am I getting my celebrations confused?

(...large recently cleanshaven woods dweller, shuffling along to LouisPrima (ala baloo bear,) doing last night's dishes, slurping coffee, with two cats, (discerned only by eyes and noses peeking out from beneath the living room couch, no doubt thinking... poor bastard's finally gone over...)

yes, happy carnivale to you all too...

Hey Lime! I am at the library so I can't view the pics or hear the music because they have all that stuff blocked. How are you?

I miss y'all so much!

The house is coming along and I am crossing my fingers to get in there earlier than predicted!
Have a great week!

Lacquer, Semi-Gloss Lacquer said...

...um, yeah,, so I wander into church this evening, 'just to see if they needed a hand setting up tables, (the youth group was making sausage and pancakes for shrove Tuesday supper...)

--Next thing you know, I'm standing there in my work clothes...
and we're all singing along...
'..I like to move it move it...' from Madigascar...

-which, --as we're trying to make pancakes on hot griddles that kept tripping off the circuit breakers became
'...I like it goopy-goopy,'

--Which had me in stitches, as, having spent plenty of time around medical staff, and thinking of Indian Doctors?

(okay Susie.... wait for it...)

Me singing: '...I like it Gupta -Gupta...'

(the mind is a dangerous thing...)
