There are also the smells and colors of the Caribean. Oh, yes, they are different. The colors, for example, I would compare with "chitão", a hard fabric from Brazil that mix strong colors such as blue, yellow, green, and red. It is almost composed of flowers, huge flowers. So, that is the Caribean. Chitão, considered a popular fabric, worn by countryside ladies, became now fashionable and it is a must in the wardrobe of famous clothing designers and home decorators.
The smell comes from the sea and from the pots in the kitchens, cooking fish with coconut milk, the traditional Caribean sauce.
