Dark, charcoal black darkies; tall, very tall, stilt walkers; the Kalinagos; beautiful queen hopefuls; ugly, ugly faces-the stuff that hell is made of; they are all here, on the streets of Roseau, Dominica; hey, is that someone wearing the face of US president Donald Trump?

Here is a sampling of the photos.
