I cleaned off my computer desktop this evening and found this wonderful photo from SK: it's not one of mine, it's by the Prime Minister's press secretary. I got it off the mailing list where the two island governments post all their press releases. It was some sort of parade honoring and celebrating the island's senior citizens. These folks are all actually dancing as they go down the street.There's music somewhere, probably a steel band. Several of the hats are red because the marchers are almost all supporters of the ruling Labour Party, and their official color is red. So it's partly a political parade, but people dance in those anyway in the Caribbean. I downloaded the photo because I liked it. And after having it sit there for who knows how many months, I found it again and still liked it.
The square grey tower in the back is the main Anglican church on the island. My office was next door to it. In the graveyard of the church, there is a splendid old banyan tree and sometimes you could see monkeys scrambling about in it and among the old tombstones, right in the center of town. If these senior marchers keep dancing straight ahead like they are doing, they'll be on the waterfront in about a quarter of a mile. They are waving at Government Headquarters which is just outside of the picture. The dark doorway with the green SUV in front of it was Jamie's office, by the way.
