Well summer is officially here.
My research department tells me that we in the Caribbean have 2 seasons, a dry season and a wet season. The dry season is from November – May and the wet season is from June – November (when we are likely to have tropical depressions, storms or hurricanes which generally means ALOT of rain!
Looking at this you would think that conventional wisdom would dictate our the summer falling somewhere in the dry months of the year especially when there is not much of a possibility of a hurricane. Another angle might be to argue that the longest days of the year must be summer. This would mean out summer is in the right place May – July months. Its possible though that the summer comes from a learned habit from our past European colonial masters? All the students in the caribbean have their longest vacation period during these months … My research department is digging deeper. I will let you know if we uncover anything else…Something to think about.
Right so as I was saying summer is here, and lots going on Vincy Mas, St. Lucia Carnival, Reggae Sumfest (JA), ATI weekend (JA), Great Fete(Tobago), Crop Over (Barbados), Antigua Carnival, Spice Mas (Grenada) and tonnes of other shows and parties. I feeling the theme song “Out on De Road” by Zan
