The prettiest costumer by far

The prettiest costume by far

I went to the Notting Hill Carnival yesterday and I got a little tipsy to say the least. But I still managed to take this picture of this amazing costume. It is a pity the lady looks like she has a cat up her arse! She looks amazing, she should smile. Charming coming from me.

Here is a short video I took. Everyone was drunk and dancing around. It was an awesome day. My foot got trodden on a million times, I had to go toilet in people houses for a £1 charge (I had to even pee by a tree in a housing estate at one point), being crushed under peoples armpits and nearly ripping off my thumbnail I can still say I love carnival

There is no other country on this earth, not even the original Carnival in Rio, Brazil, where you will find such a plethora of people from a multitude of nationalities congregating in one area.I heard a float playing Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” I even saw an Asian lady in a sari standing on the stairs of a house (she might have been lost, I am not sure).

Nevertheless, all the people who say, “I won’t go to carnival, it is too dangerous,” are wrong. You can spot a trouble maker a mile away, just step out their way. London is the most exciting city in the world and I have wasted too long not enjoying it. London reminds me of the Daft Punk song “Around the World.” I have many friends who have grown up in different countries and speak different languages, it is this amalgamation of culture and hertiage that allows us to be better people. To have empathy for others and to understand the dynamics of different cultures.

My friend turns 25 today. I have known him since university and we have been good amigos ever since. Happy Day of Birth!

This is a video my friend took in 2007 at carnival when we dragged her little sister. Poor thing.
