Tens of thousands of revelers turned the heart of Haiti’s capital into a colorful party for the second “Carnival of Flowers” in Port-au-Prince.Parade goers donned colorful costumes as they danced through the streets, while musicians played the Caribbean country’s flowing rhythms.The festival included street theater such as one piece involving a man dressed as Haitian national hero Jean-Jacques Dessalines laid out in his coffin.The celebration is not without criticism. A few hundred protesters marched in Port-au-Prince last week, saying the $2.2 million budgeted for the festival would have been better spent elsewhere. Officials counter that the event is employing more than 1,500 people as makeup artists, dancers and caterers.

 LIVVI FRANC

Livvi Francjpg_Livvi_Franc_10

Franc  (her father is Bajan, her mother is British) had a No. 1 dance hit in 2009 in “Now I’m That Bitch” with Pitbull. These days she’s more active as a songwriter (her credits include songs for Jordin Sparks, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears and Rihanna) but, with a face and body like this, it’s only a matter of time before the spotlight is on her again.

Located on Trinidad’s Northern side, Maracas Beach is an hour’s breathtaking drive through the mountains from Port of Spain. It is considered one of the very best on the island because the bay out to sea protects the waters, making them relatively calm for bathing and setting the scene for some idyllic days on the sand.
