And it has been an appropriately relaxing day.

It's been on all day and into the evening, though we haven't watched it all that time, needless to say. As I type, they are interviewing the president, who is in a t-shirt matching those of the people around him on his parade stand. I have no idea what he is saying, but it has something to do with the carnival as well as perhaps more official sounding business (I did understand the word work - travay). I gather he has a five-E theme here: education, environnement, emploi, and two others.

8 PM, and the streets of Les Cayes are packed. It looks like fun.
I, however, am happy to be home enjoying this down time.
