    What West Indian

    thing have you tried to buy in a non-West Indian area?

    The corned beef question reminds me of when we tried to buy it in our (then) lily white neighborhood in Atlanta. They had no idea what we were talking about. When we explained, they told us that they could give us SPAM!

    But even funnier than that was when my granny tried to get blue and asafoetida. I tell her dat dem not gwine have it and she seh mek she try cah it sell ah New York. I can still remember the Chinese man asking her "Blue WHAT?!!?"

    Whether there is a moral component to being less clothed than an European, I'm not getting into because that's a personal thing.
    Carnival: carne valle: farewell flesh means it is time to be myself in all my godly glory. I am a man created in God's image, making me beautiful. We get half naked in the bright sun, soak up some vitamin D and jump to a rythm because as human beings, rythms entrance us; they harken to our mothers' rhythmic heartbeat in the womb. Its a natural, healthy experience.

    Is your corned beef different from American corned beef?
