Update - Kiddies Carnival, Traditional Style

On Carnival Friday, the children took to the streets to take part in Traditional Mas. All the characters of old time mas can be seen at Victoria Square here. From the Square, they wove their way through the streets of Port of Spain, in the hot mid day sun. There was a steel band, tassa, rhythm section and lots of whistles.

Update - Hosay in St. James

If you've never been to Hosay, I highly recommend it. It's a Muslim Shi'ite religious event that is steeped in centuries of history. The story behind it is quite interesting. The event spans several days, but it builds up to the day of Big Hosay. I've managed to capture a "few" shots of Big Hosay in St. James. Take a look!
