Carnival colour explosion!
So I mentioned that I was going to the carnival a few days ago and the carnival did not disappoint! Colour explosions to fill anyone's imagination of dancing, singing and generally enjoying life.
I love how after all the crap London has gone through with the riots, joy, fun, and happiness still come out on top fighting.
I definitely enjoyed my day, every street corner that we turned down lead to new adventures. I followed my nose and ended up guffling down jerk chicken, curried goat, festival, corn on the cob, and fresh young coconut juice.
It reminded me of the St Pauls carnival which I attended in Bristol, just on a much grander scale. The atmosphere was similar though, people being happy, dragging you to dance, commenting on how much they love your outfit, offerings of free food.
If you haven't been before, I would highly recommend that you go next year, and I can guarantee that it will bring a smile to your face :)
