Ok. Jamaica and Settlers carnivals are over. It’s fair to take a few days to recover and bask in the sweet memories of those events, however, don’t rest on your laurels. It’s already time to start the long, arduous task of getting ready for Trinidad carnival 2013 (with a bit of Crop Over for your midterm exams).
I have prepared a short list of important events and activities, and approximately when they should be performed.
Now this is an almost laughably short and incomplete list but it does cover the basic things that a newbie needs to consider if you want to make your trip a reality.
|April||Start the Lehwego Greek God/Goddess workout plan|
|May||Contact Thecarnivalconnection to start organizing your trip|
|June||Pay planefare/book car (CONFIRM PRICE OF CAR!!)|
|July||Pay hotel downpayment (note final payment date)||Band’s launch|
|August||Pay downpayment on costume|
|September||Contact LehwegoFrontline for costume upgrades|
|November||Buy sneakers/boots and break them in (keep them clean)|
|December||Finish paying for costume and costume delivery (early payment=fast track/delivery option)|
|January||Purchase accessories ladies||Whiten teeth!||Purchase fete tickets|
Have you started your prep!Now I want all you veterans to chime in and let me know what I forgot so I can make this list better for those looking for the info.
