As promised, my coverage of Carnival in Trinidad continues. Below is my “Just Back From” post I penned for Fodor’s Travel that details the Carnival highlights, from whining, liming and feting to everything in between. Also, you can learn what exactly those Trinidadian English terms mean in the Fodor’s post linked here:

Just Back From: Carnival in Trinidad

I talked a bit about high-energy, have-to-move-your-body, soca music in the post. In the video below you can hear more of the music—and even spot me “on ‘d’ road” on Carnival Tuesday, “playing mas” with the Paparazzi band. More than 13 hours of parading and dancing through Port of Spain were condensed into the 8:39 video, and nothing is held back. Carnival, particularly playing mas, is not for the reserved. (That was my way of saying there’s a lot of booty shaking in the video, so I am issuing the warning it is potentially NSFW.)

Enjoy!

Art Classes for Beginners in NYC

Drawing and painting is a great wintertime hobby outside the typical hibernation routine, and NYC has a plethora of options. These three are my favorites for their attitude, and their relationship to the city and the art world. The Art Students League of New York Founded in 1875, the list of names who have floated through this school is long: Ai Weiwei, Jackson Pollock, Norman Rockwell, Mark Rothko, Al Hirschfeld, Roy Lichtenstein, Georgia O’Keeffe and Maurice Sendack, to name a […]
