Poor Patrick. He may be the more adventurous of the two of us, having scaled the Caribbean’s tallest peak, tried his hand at kiteboarding, and survived some serious canyoning in recent years, but all that’s child’s play compared to what he’s about to face. His next BIG adventure:
Trinidad Carnival 2K15!
This will be Patrick’s first-ever Trinidad Carnival experience, and I gotta say, I’m a little nervous for him. I mean, remember what happened when he discovered the “magic” of Montserrat’s bush rum? If such troubles could confront him in ultra-sleepy Montserrat, who’s to say what might happen in/around de Savannah on Carnival Monday and Tuesday?
Then there was the aftermath of this unforgettable Buck Island sailing adventure. Those who bore witness to the carnage are sworn to secrecy, but let’s just say this overzealous Carnival reveler from a couple years past had nothing on my bro after that particular afternoon of fun.
Indeed, it’s all-too-easy to lose oneself completely in the sizzling spectacle that is Trinidad Carnival. To help Patrick get up to speed on what might happen, here’s a great animated video for “Lucy,” one of the latest smash soca hits from The Queen of Bacchanal herself, Destra. In it, the story of how the singer’s first Carnival experience got her “so damn loose” is laid out in so sexy a Trini style that it makes Jessica Rabbit seem tame.
Yeah, ummm, good luck, bro…
