guess what? this is making my head hurt today. the pain is twofold: 1) after drinking heaps of margaritas last night, no, the gigantic drums (of the steel and other varieties) at the trinidad & tobago embassy across the street from me do not sound nice and 2) i cannot go to any of these events because the person i would take with me to see these dumb embassies and their "stately mansions and exclusive compounds" does not arrive for 10 days. so fuck you, around the world embassy tour.
every time something exciting happens at the trinidad & tobago embassy they dress up like the above photograph and play drums and sometimes they sing hymns. life seems real awesome on these islands.
