Manic Monday: Crop Over 2012

Here's a fun video of Crop Over 2012 in Barbados, showing how Bajans get down and have a great time. We don't all behave like some of the women in this video but it's close enough to the debauchery that occurs on Kadooment day. This is the second time I've missed it and as Olivia and I stood in the queue for the Anne Frank Huis here in Amsterdam, trying to stay dry in the potential downpour, a small part of me cursed my predicament.

We missed our friends, the partying, the rum, the beads, the glitter & the excitement of the Crop Over season. The light at the end of our wet tunnel is of course Nottinghill Carnival in London at the end of this month; equally as wutless and crazy fun. It's the one day of the year when you can get away with blue murder (unless you're caught on camera of course, then you're in serious trouble)
