Integration, Integration, Integration


Can you spot the Peace Corps Volunteer?  I was asked by the village cultural group, Karifuna, to participate in their stage performance during the annual Carnival Queen Pageant held before a crowd of 1,000 plus at the National Stadium in the capital city.  It was great fun to dance around on stage all crazy while looking like a smurf.  This was apparently an opposite representation of slavery, the "blue man" is in chains and being oppressed by an evil man with a whip.  Why have me participate?  "Well, you are the only one with skin that blue dye will look nice on . . . "  Oh.
