While I Was Gone…

When my friends returned to DC after their Grenada adventure, I returned to work without missing a beat, but terribly sad that my vacation was now over. Even though I’ve only been officially back in class for four weeks, it feels more like seven, and I can’t help but wonder where the time went. Slow down 2015; nobody’s in a rush here! I guess this is my feeble attempt at an excuse explaining my absence from the blog again. Did it work?
So here it is again, my usual photo round-up post to get me back into the groove.
On January 17th, I accompanied my Dad to the first Live At the Carenage floating concert. It was a fantastic evening. The floating stage was set up in the middle of the Carenage, and from our perch on the upper deck of the Rhum Runner II, we danced to the sweet sounds of pan from Pan Wizards, and sang along with For the Love of Music (F.L.O.M.), Soul Deep, and Ajamu and Kuting Edge. To be honest though, I stayed seated for Ajamu’s performance. After the amazing performances by Pan Wizards, F.L.O.M and Soul Deep, Ajamu really disappointed me. Oh well.

I’m so happy that live music and bands are getting the appreciation they deserve in Grenada. I’m even happier our young, talented musicians are getting the opportunity to display their craft. You can see more from F.L.O.M here, and Soul Deep right here. Now, if only I can find a wine festival to go to.
The start of a new semester at SGU means the Orientation Bazaar where Grenadian businesses display their products and services, but really it’s all about the food, and the entertainment. For as many years as I can remember, the Tivoli Drummers have been entertaining new students with captivating drumming performances. At one point in my life I told my Mom that I wanted to learn to dance with the Tivoli Drummers. Every time I see them perform I still do, but somehow I don’t think I can get my body to move quite like this…

Sometimes you just need to hop in your Terios and take a drive around your island and admire the beauty around you. I’ve been around Grenada a countless number of times, but a few Sundays ago was the first time that I did the driving…and I didn’t get lost! We went up the eastern side, joined some friends for a cook up at Bathway beach, and then chased the setting sun down the west coast.

Grenada celebrated its 41st anniversary of Independence a few days ago on February 7th. To mark the occasion we went on an Independence Hash through the mountains and bush of Beaulieu. Thankfully there wasn’t much mud, but that still didn’t stop me from falling flat on the least treacherous part of the trail. Happy 41st Grenada, you’re still looking fab as ever!

So that’s it for this round-up. I’m taking suggestions for what I should try to blog about next. 🙂
