Notting Hill Carnival 2006

Post placeholder image

Last year I went to the Notting Hill Carnival by myself. I had only been in London a few months, and none of the people I knew wanted to go. However, this year, things were much different. I actually went with a group almost 20 members strong. It was a bit challenging in a crowd of a half million for us to stick together, but we somehow managed not to loose too many people. That said, calling the first day (typically a Sunday) Children’s Day is a bit of a joke. The floats are not as impressive as on the second day, and more importantly, there are just too many people, and most are there to have a good time. That means lots of drinking; so not the best environment for children. I myself only had 1 rum punch which left me buzzed well into the night. I know, lame huh? But that’s me these days. I hardly ever drink alcoholic drinks. In any event, if you want to see the evidence of the good times had yesterday, check out my flickr pictures from the event.
