Birmingham Caribbean Festival
I took a few hours out from slaving over a hot laptop (I’m trying to finish the Love is Not a Reward Sourcebook before the end of the month) to check out the Birmingham Caribbean Festival.
The food, the music, and the colours made me extremely homesick for the Caribbean. Alas the weather was not always as Caribbean as we would have liked.
Thanks to Ayaso Food for taking the time to prepare and cook a special fish for me even he’d packed up for the night. It was divine, and well worth the wait.
