In Trinidad's historic capital city of Port of Spain, the elements of calypso, steelpan, and playing mas (masquerade) are harmoniously structured to form a five day pageant of ritual. Beginning with the King and Queen Contest on Friday, Panorama on Saturday, Dimanche Gras on Sunday, J'Ouvert Monday, and concluding with the Parade of the Bands on Fat Tuesday. These main events, and countless others, build to an unforgettable display of beauty and a stunning demonstration of the irrepressible human spirit.
This is Carnival like no other. The country's motto is "Together we Aspire, Together we Achieve", and that they most certainly do.

Hi from New Orleans, where we are in the middle of our own Carnival celebration. I'll try to post some pictures from the Big Easy this week! This Carnival in Trinidad looks wild!
