Dear you,

I know I haven't uploaded a new post since 2010 (ok, it was only 6 days), but I'm back.!! These past few days I just didn't have the time and energy to blog, but today I'm telling you all about it, so no need to worry.
What you gotta know is that here in Suriname New Year's Eve is the biggest celebration of the year. Lots of festivities are being held in honor of this day, but the ultimate hotspot is still the "pagara-estafette" in downtown Par'bo. So that's where I went to that late morning. My dad dropped my cousin, my brother, one of his friends and me off on the edge of the city, because there was just no getting through. It was very crowded.!! People from all over the country came I guess. Besides the pagaras, there was music everywhere. If it wasn't from one of the stages, it came outta a fully loaded car parked alongside the road. And as usual SSW on the big truck. Poor girls, they were burning in the sun from dancing on the roof of that truck, but they seemed to have lotsa fun. Oeh.!! I took a picture with the 2 leading actors of the latest Suriname production called SURINAME. I know how it feels to be recognized for your work, so I didn't hesitate asking them for a piccie.
Jerry M, Rodney C, Me, and the "very important" man xD

We went home round 3... where I tried taking a nap, but I just couldn't get myself to it. Around 5 I took a shower and got ready for church, our owru jari service. Although I felt weary, we went to 't Vat after that. It felt a little different from all the other years. Didn't really enjoy myself. We went home around 10, took a shower right away and got ready to go to bed. Luckily I was still up at 00.00. Happy New Yearrrr.!! A friend of my bro stopped by to give us his wishes, and shortly after my friend (and her bf) also came. We talked for a while... After they left, I finally went to bed. Here at home we don't really celebrate these things, but I know for sure that I will when I have my own family.

Dunno what's up with me today, but I don't really feel like writing. So I'm leaving you with these photos from my pagara journey.

(This was written yesterday, I was trying to upload more pics, but they failed, I'm sorry, so today I'm posting this blog)
