Right after arriving in Martinique we enjoyed their celebration of Carnival with a twist.

Instead of trekking the distance to the Capital city of Fort de France to deal with the crowds and see the big parades, we opted to stay locally in the little village of St. Anne and watch the inhabitants and some visitors join in their scaled down parades.

They may not be quite as elaborate as the big parades but they certainly were good fun!
