For real – not into books or thoughts or daydreams?
Happy Caribana y’all. A lot of people are pouring in for the Caribana parade today- escaping stress, isolation, the daily grind and such like. Many are coming for Drake’s OVO Fest, plunked down right in the middle of Caribana as it is. Quite a number are escaping town, going to cottages and family activities for this long holiday weekend: a fair few are actively running away from Caribana. Incidentally, not every Caribbean person is a Caribana faithful or party animal perpetually seeking the next carnival high. There is always a raging debate where I come from about the pros and cons of many aspects of the festival – with loud, reasonable voices who love it and loud, reasonable voices who loathe it.
Let’s not think about that today. You don’t have to say a word; just come with me and escape …to Venus. The guy singing below makes it sound sweet.
