their presentation celebrated Mexico. My section was El Día de los Muertos.
For the most part, I don’t miss participating in Carnival. However, every now and again, there’s a soca song (or two) that beckon me to come out of retirement. This season, my I-can’t-help-it-I-have-to-take-a-lil-wine tunes are:
Now I want to go to all the fetes and wine on all the boys and buy a costume and hit the road on Carnival Monday and Tuesday. Whey de music truck?
