the road, are always popular.
One-stop wining lessons for tourists: Ever
seen those sorry foreigners who do strange things
with their lower bodies and call it dancing? Rather
than shake your head, how about having roving
dance instructors, who for a small fee will give
personalised, professional Carnival dance lessons
to the uninitiated?
Wining self-defence classes: When trapped
between two music trucks and buffeted by waves
of people (unless you re "behind the ropes" of
an all-inclusive mas band), it may come to pass
that strange but happy people will dance with
you, on you, at you, in unwanted ways. To avoid
such unsolicited yet enthusiastic contacts, the
same tutor of wining (see previous example of
a business entrepreneur) should also offer "anti-
wining" tips and techniques, as a form of Carnival
Bodyguards: This small business opportunity
may become increasingly popular as crime waves
increase. All-inclusive mas bands have long hired
their own professional security. The idea can be
adapted to smaller limes. Can provide useful work
for unemployed gangsters, martial arts experts,
or your neighbourhood big muscle man (or
Boomsie guards: Similar to bodyguards, but
less military (not armed), and possessing spe-
cialised body skills in both dancing and operation
as a pelvic defence shield against other unwanted
dancers. May be hired by men or women.
Fluorescent Carnival condoms: A long-
standing belief in T&T is that the unplanned
pregnancy rate rises in February, with lots of
October babies. But enterprising businessfolk
might do some helpful as well as profitable busi-
ness by selling creative, humourous, effective
prophylactics of all kinds---and maybe even get
sponsorship from the Family Planning Association.
Imagine mobile, human condom dispensers
decked out like Pierrot Grenades...
Carnival tours: Many locals prefer to organise
their own limes. But for the total foreigner, or
even the local who doesn t get out much, how
about a Carnival tour guide who, for varying fees,
offers a tailored itinerary of experiences and ven-
ues, both a few days before Carnival (eg scenic
nature trips, beaches, landmarks of interest in
various parts of T&T) and during Carnival (select-
ed fetes, street-walk limes, concerts, make-your-
own-mask sessions, off-the-beaten-path expe-
riences, or a mix of these things)? The more
flexible, knowledgeable and entertaining the guides
are, the more business they may win. Ideally,
they would be trained, certified tour guides with
some imagination, some historical and environ-
mental knowledge, and the ability to tell a great
story about anything they visit.
J Ouvert buses: There is always a problem
for pedestrians who play messy J Ouvert in places
far from home: most forms of public transit will
simply not accept you. What about a Carnival
small business that offers "wet buses"? There
could be outdoor hoses or showers to clean off
most muck, followed by group travel in plastic-
wrapped bus seats.
Post-mas foot massages: After all the exer-
tion, many revellers head to the beach to relax.
And what better therapy than to have roving foot
masseurs offer you their podiatric and/or reflex-
ological tender loving care?
