Water in a fete can be thought of as a general purpose whole body lubricant that makes the wine all that more slippery and enjoyable. It also does wonders for ladies outfits.
As you can imagine, put 1000 guys and girls together in these conditions and BAM! Madness! Case in point…Insomnia and Caesars army AM Bush jouvert.
On the road it’s even better. Apart from the aforementioned lubricated wine it’s just the feeling of wild abandon that comes with enjoying the rain on your face…not caring that your expensive costume is melting….that your shoes are ruined….camera mash up!
In Trinidad I’m not sure if the same would be true. I can imagine that after spending 1000$ on costume and untold sums on boots, hair, makeup etc, a thunderstorm would not a happy lady make…..
I personally stay away from the Tribe’s wet zones in Trinidad because the mist carries my (copiously applied) sunblock into my eyes. In Jamaica…..Bring it ON!
Wetter is better!
How about you?
