Samba time

Minister Of Tourism Richard Sealy may not know any samba steps, but he definitely knows how to “guh down”. Sealy was in the limelight for a brief spell yesterday when Brazilian samba band Sociedade Rosas De Oura paid a courtesy call at his office. The 28-member contingent is in Barbados for a two-week visit, which allowed them to take in several Crop Over activities, conduct workshops and perform at various venues. Here, Minister Sealy taking a “little wine” with the assistance of costumed dancers. (Picture by Lennox Devonish.)
