Carnival Tuesday – Trinidad 2010

After an exhausting Sunday and Monday, we put on our costumes to get ready for Carnival Tuesday.  We spent the entire day walking and jumping up with a band called Harts.  I thought my legs were going to give out on me!  My sister and I were wearing old costumes of my aunt’s from a few years ago, but no one seemed to notice :)  We even posed for tons of photos with other tourists.  Next time, I want to get an official costume and go earlier so I can go to some of the fetes before Carnival.

The camera battery decided to die on me just before Carnival Tuesday, so I didn’t take nearly as many photos as I wanted to and I used my aunt’s camera.  I was having too much fun to take photos anyway :)

  • Wow, it is so bright and colorful. I wonder if it was the bigger fun that a carnival in Brazil))

    Probably! Trinidad Carnival is all inclusive, which means that anyone can play in a band. In Brazil, you have to be part of a samba school.

  • I love the pics!

    I’m brand new to your blog, and I love it! I’m very jealous that you get to have such amazing experiences! I really enjoy looking at your pictures Jasmine, so keep up the good work.

    On a side note, my husband has told me that if we have a baby girl that he wants to name her Jasmine. He hasn’t seen your blog (yet) but it’s a very pretty name!
