If we were to describe Notting Hill Carnival 2014 in one sentence it would be “Rain or Shine, we gonna Whine”!
It was a tale of two Carnivals.
Sunday, the kiddies day, was bathed in Glorious sunshine. Families by the thousands, enjoying the spectacle that is Carnival!
Policemen being “whined” upon by gyrating beauties, revelers dancing with abandon. And how we love the smell of Jerk Chicken wafting through the air. Jamaican Patties fed the multitudes! And “We Love we Chicken and we Goat well curry”, Supacat would say! Truly a magnificent day!
Monday, the adult’s day, was magnificent in a different way. It showed the true resilience of the real reveler. In contrast to the sunny Sunday, we had a very moist Monday! Rain steadily poured from the start to the finish. But did that stop us? No! Can we party in the Rain? Yes we Can! And Yes we did! And we did it with distinction…Party goers were soaked to the bone, but it seemed to only make us dance harder!
At Carnival, The five senses get a cultural charge and the sixth sense might even come into play!
We were based at London’s coolest bar, Trailer Happiness! 177 Portobello Rd. Great times at a Great Location!
