Had to physch myself to post today. As it gets closer to Christmas I'm getting more and more sad about the fact that this is the first year in my life to be so far away with no family around. I hate that. I am not normally a sad person and I generally love Christmas. It's my choice to live her and it is paradise.
OK, enough of that. I am not going to whine.
Last Thursday it was 'Double Cruise Ship Day'. That means we had two cruise ships stop at the island. On those days I usually go and work the bazaar with my friend Iotha. It's fun. Kind of like a big party. I like haggleing with the tourists.
Anyway, I got pictures.
First up. The booth. That's Miss Iotha to the left in the long dress with the red hat.
Here are some of the general bazaar;
The 'Mocko Jumbies' came to entertain and protect us all from the 'Jumbies" (evils spirits).
One cruise ship had come in very early in the morning (this is what they usually do), but the other was docking later in the day.
I have one more picture of the 'Mocko Jumbie', it wouldn't post before.
There is music blaring and people dancing. As I said earlier it's like a big street party, 'Cruzan Style'. Most of the music was Christmas music, but you had to listen close to recognize it. It's all played with either a calypso or reggae beat.
On these days when I work the cruise ships I am Cruzan. I like that.
This was yesterday's post, but we have been having big storms pass by the island. Lots of wind, big surf and poor Internet connection.
Tomorrow, I hope I'll be back. I have some pictures of the 'Edge of the World' to show you.
Still don't know where the commas go, not particularly sure where I am today either.
