La mas grande fiesta mundial en Trinidad

The World’s Biggest Party In Trinidad

In an April 2007 journal, Youth Journalism International writer Kate Agard reported from Port-of-Spain, Trinidad about studying through the annual Carnival, the world’s biggest party.
With Carnival slated for March 7 and 8 this year — next Monday and Tuesday — it seems an opportune time to take another look at Agard’s piece. 
By the way, Kate is now a student at Harvard University, so apparently all that studying paid off.

I hit the books

Port-of-Spain, TRINIDAD – Lent is almost over, and for a semi-practicing Roman Catholic, that should mean something. It should symbolize growth or change; sacrifice and resolution.
But for me, it means a week of abstaining from meat and not much else.
Lent used to be a big deal, but now, at least in Trinidad, it’s just the period of time that follows Carnival.
Carnival seems to be our raison-d’etre – the rest of the year is just a reason to prepare for it.
And this year, I missed it all completely. Talk about sacrifice.Officially, for a few days in February that make up Carnival, we are forgiven from any normally acceptable standard of behavior.
It’s a time like no other. Click here to read the entire story.
Youth Journalism International’s annual journalism contest is underway. See www.YouthJournalism.org for details.
