A Caribbean feel was never far away...even if it's the biggest street party in Europe, attracting thousands from around the world. Doesn't the Grenada flag look great in the London sun! [photo by Debbie Ransome]

Every Caribbean flag (other parts of the world were available) could be spotted on the streets of West London during the festival. [photo: Caribbean Intelligence contributor]

That London feeling was also always close to hand. Bus destination? Notting Hill Carnival, of course. [Caribbean Intelligence contributor]
