Every time Trinis meet visitors and especially people who are going to be here for a year or longer, the conversation inevitably turns to Carnival and how great it is.  It’s the Greatest Show on Earth don’t ya know.

Well I don’t think it’s a show, but it certainly is a really good time and the question is 

Should you play or Not.

My advice is yes. 

Definitely play. 

It’s a once in a lifetime experience and you can brag to all of your friends that you were part of it.  Even if you don’t like it.

Don’t put it off for another year. 

Why?  Because if you really like it, you’ll kick yourself for missing a year. 

Hey!  There are Trinis that travel all over the world in a year following carnival, or at least everyone’s imitation of it.  They go from Trinidad to Barbados, to Caribana, to Labour Day to Miami to Nottinghill and end up right back here again.

Aren't you curious to experience what they're getting?

 Play in the original as soon as you can, and get a taste of the source of our Carnival culture.

Oh, and I hope you've been working out ... cause the natives have been since November, and you'll need to keep up.
