  • good list…however he forgot a few things…

    1. Imodium, or some other form of medication on hand in case on consumes food that doesn’t “agree” with your system

    2. small waterproof pouch… to hold a piece of paper with one’s address (you may need this if/when you consume too much alcohol), emergency contact numbers, a little spare cash, “protection” and anything else you deem necessary

    The last one isn’t so much a list of things to carry WITH you, but rather what you should do before you get to carnival… DO go to and get up to date on all your soca music!! :)

    see you guys there!
