Referred to as ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’ by those in the Caribbean and South American we can understand why. Only Carnival can create this unique atmosphere where different races and cultures can come together have a grand time.
The sea of colour during Carnival is a true reflection of the diversity that can be experienced during this festival. There are many things that separate us and make us different but only a few occasions such as Carnival can we come together and share in the festivities.
While Carnival may have different meaning for various cultures we can be certain that the unity, passion and fun are constants which resonate with each and every one of us.
This weekend is Notting Hill Carnival and there will be a wealth of culture and diversity right in London. I encourage you to go and experience something different and expand your horizons. Do something that will enrich your life – make a new friend, eat something spicy, dance in the streets or experience a different culture.
Many people believe Carnival is a party, but it is more than that…it is a life experience.
