As a writer and photographer I travel between my life in Toronto, my life in Antigua, and anywhere else my wanderings may take me ... writing my books and enjoying local arts and adventures along the way.

Judging of the Bands

Since my children were playing mas with the Solid Mas Troupe, and since I dropped in on them to say hi almost every other day, it was probably inevitable that on the day of the Judging of the Bands that I would walk with them. Chandy, Brian and others that helped organize the troupe didn’t play mas (join the parade) today. Today was for making sure all their troupe arrived at the right place at the right time, had their costumes, and were fed and refreshed. Their individual costumes would rankĀ amongst the most splendid in the entire parade, but they would save the irridescent materials of those costumes for the final day of the parade, tomorrow’s Last Lap.
