The Journey Begins Update..

After discovering the launch of Carvalho's "The Journey Begins" I visited their mas camp at Alaska Bar on Ariapita Avenue last Monday to take a look at the costumes. While the camp was still undergoing preparations for opening I was able to see all 9 sections in some state of readiness as well as I got to chat with one of the person's involved in the band which has severed ties with Evolution.

The main designers of the band are Tracey Julien and Christine Sadler, it is interesting to note that Tracey designed the now defunct"Flamingo" section in TRIBE. Production of costumes for the band are in full swing and I was able to take a closer look at the section "Rainbow" which was being made right there!

Mas Camp opening was scheduled for Wednesday of last week, however when I visited again on Thursday they were still closed. Hopefully mas camp will be open for business soon; will keep you updated!

The Anti Saucy Facebook Group!

Well imagine my surprise when I found this group on Facebook called "TRINIDAD CARNIVAL DIARY AKA SAUCY IS A TOURISM DISGRACE". The description of the group is as follows:

WHY ARE TRINIDADIANS SUPPORTING A WOMAN, WHO NEVER STUDIED CARNIVAL, DESIGN, OR THE ARTS....BUT TALKS LIKE SHE IS A CARNIVAL GOD.

SWAMPING OUR BELOVED CULTURE WITH GOSSIP AND STUPIDITY....

THE TDC NEEDS SUPPORT TO SHUT HER DOWN IN ADDITION TO OTHER SITES THAT ARE A VIRUS TO THE TOURISM SECTOR.

Finally, someone has created a anti- Trinidad Carnival Diary group, the ying to my yang, what a pity there is only one member, this could have been interesting!
