My friend Hanna & I decided to seize the opportunity to enjoy the glorious sunshine with a few of our good friends in the shape of a Jah Jamaican BBQ...
We transported a little bit of the Caribbean up to London Fields (with the help of some lovely friends... Nick, Maria & Ross we THANK you!) in the shape of jerk-seasoned chicken & vegetables, garlic & ginger sweet potatoes, pineapple & mint salsa, corn on the cobs, coconut rice & peas, tropical fruits, rum and Red Stripe beers.
My friend Kev had kindly lent me his boom box, so with an iPod loaded full of Reggae tones, blankets laid out, rum punch bowl filled, head scarves in place, beers cracked open and the Barbequicks on standby, we were all set for our guests to arrive...
...And maaaaan did they arrive! :) :) :D
We had such an amazing turn-out, probably more than either Hanna or myself had anticipated. It really was a day of peace, love & understanding, interjected with a good few Wray & Nephew rum shot speeches from Hanna!
Biggest thanks to everyone who turned up with beautiful food, drinks, laughter and smiles... and most of all to Hanna for the best Sunday afternoon sunshine idea EVER!
Ai an nai... JAH RASTAFARIIIIII!!!
