My kind of morning exercise


Thursday, April 30, 2009

J'ouvert: It's 9 AM and I have 6200 steps on my pedometer

We heard the music at 5 AM - I was out of bed and ready to go by 5:30. We rolled down the hill, parked, and found a sparse crowd milling around in the sunrise. We walked, we met friends, we chatted, we were interviewed on the radio (the guy told me I was dressed like a tourist in my VI Lottery T shirt for Carnival), we went for coffee, we came out, the trucks hauling the bands were coming down the road and people were starting to dance. So we danced with the crowd, we danced in the road, we danced on the sidewalk, we danced some more.

We left about 8, the sun was up and getting hot. But we can still hear the bands, the music amped up so it resounds even in our apartment. Kind of cool.
