...does that make me an activist?

World AIDS Day 2008

After this weekend, I will probably really truly feel that my work here is done. I think the photo & video documentation say it all, my friends.
On Saturday, the National AIDS Directorate Carriacou/Petite Martinique committee is hosting a Red Ribbon Dance in THE Saturday party destination on our island, d Coconut Bar. Our most popular Caribbean string band (complete with ukelele, mandolin, AND banjo!), the Country Boys, will perform; we'll hang the fact-posters from the march, strategically place baskets of male & female condoms around the club, and distribute red ribbons . . . Oscar-style.
I'll let you know how it goes, and whether or not it'll be time to come home.
