I was recently at the Notting Hill Carnival, which is the biggest festival of its kind in Europe. The streets of Notting Hill came alive to the sights, sounds and smells of the Caribbean.
There were plenty of Barbados flags flying at this years Carnival and quite a few people with Bajan blood in them. It was a fun packed couple of days, with people having a good time and enjoying the Caribbean vibes.
I wouldn’t have minded a few bottles of ice cold Banks Beer, but alas I had to make do with some Mount Gay Rum, which went down a treat.
I put together a wee YouTube video of some of London’s Iconic sights, which is worth taking a wee look at………
I have been stuck in London for the past 6 months and I suppose I’m kind of a wee bit disappointed that after having spent 9 solid months on Barbados, I haven’t managed to get myself back onto the island.
I unfortunately know that unless a miracle happens that I wont be back on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Barbados until 2010. When I will stay for a month, at a hotel with a magnificent view of the Caribbean sea and a tiny walk to the beach and an even shorter stroll to all the bars, and restaurants of St Lawrence Gap.
It doesn’t get much better than wee break by the sea in Barbados………
