Carnaval is coming!

Last night Carnaval was officially opened, as the mayoress of Barranquilla handed over the key of the city to La Reina De Carnaval (Queen of Carnaval). There was a big ceremony in the Romelil Martinez football stadium, and wonderful fireworks that could be seen across the city.

The night before I went to a parade and party. There was dancing, drinking, music and everyone enjoyed themselves- the city is certainly getting into the party spirit and I can’t wait for the actually carnaval of 2013 to get started!
