I got back this week from the Jamaica Carnival. What an experience it was. It was my first Jamaica Carnival. The crowded was mixed with people of all aspects of Jamaica society. They all “palanced” together as one. There was a heavy shower but did not stop people from “partying”. I got soaked wet and got shelter on the truck with the portable toilets. The conversation on the truck was interesting. I heard many people say this was not a very big Carnival and that it is not like it used to be. Being that it was my first Jamaica Carnival experience I have nothing to compare it.
