Where I stayed
Today is the day! Ever since I read about Caribana, I was looking forward to it. I even put on some crazy nails and did my make-up to fit the day. I was really stoked!
Caribana is on for several days with dancing competitions and other events but I went down for the parade. I was disappointed to see the 6 feet metal fences separating the parade from the spectators, really cut down on feeling like you're a part of it.
I took a lot of pictures but most have the fence in the way. Only once I found a spot right at the fence did I get some clear pics. The costumes are amazing, really wish I could do them justice.
I went to a similar parade in London back in the day and had an amazing time
It took a while but I found the beer gardens. Unfortunately an older drunk dude glommed onto me and was a bit handsy so I left. I was really hoping to meet people my age and have fun...damn!
Another hot & muggy day and I was on my feet for 5 hours so I walked from the waterfront to downtown. Saw the CN Tower and went for dinner. After, made my way back to the hotel and was exhausted!
