Trinidad and Tobago: Carnival Boat

Categories: Caribbean, Trinidad & Tobago

An exquisite sculpture [1] by glass artist Dale Chihuly inspires Francomenz to rhapsodize on Trinidad and Tobago's famous Carnival [2], which is gearing up virtually as this is being written. “It. . . doesn’t matter what forces have conspired to shape the glass,” says Francomenz, “they’re all in the same boat, going in the same direction – perhaps something to keep in mind as T&T struggles with an upsurge in crime and people cut themselves off from one another, building stronger fences and higher walls.”
