Caribana 2010 Launch

I endured the sweat hot heat to feel de vibe & be part of the official launch of Caribana 2010.
The truly devoted expatriates and young new Caribana fans made their way down to uncovered Dundas Square in the middle of our blasted 2 week heat wave (it now still feels like 37° with the humidity!) to kick off the festival. Hmmm, I suppose it did feel like Trinidad.
There was a noticeable absence of many of the top bands representing at this years' launch. Only a few bands sent models actually. The costumes that were paraded around sure looked spectacular in the sun though, and it did get me into the mood about playing mas in 2 weeks.

How fantastic are these boots!!? I just love them, & wait...
