I hope you all had an amazing Labor Day weekend!
You probably know from my previous posts that I am a big cultural festivals fan. Whenever I have a chance to enjoy traditional rituals and customs, I go for it. This past week, instead of heading to the beach for a conventional Labour Day celebration, I enjoyed embracing the Caribbean culture. Brooklyn was alive with soca (also known as chutney music) and calypso. My senses came alive from the island food and tropical colors. Although the heat was rather oppressive and I wanted to douse myself with a bucket of ice, this venture was well worth it. The colorful costumes, bodies dusted with glitter, traditional dance movements and subtle mystery proved to be an ideal way to end the summer.
