Boasy!

So I finally got it together to properly take pictures at Boasy Tuesday. Boasy (or Boassi, or probably another spelling) comes from "boast." It has to do with showing off, flamboyance, fabulousness. Such is the order of this street dance, which occurs once a week, starting after midnight, in a certain street in Kingston, bracketed by speaker towers, pan chicken sellers, and a guy selling (be still my heart) sprats & festival!

I took a ton of pictures, here is round one:
