I finally got to Carnival

Uruguayan Carnival is a popular festival that takes place every year in Uruguay from mid January to late February …

Carnival in Montevideo is very different from carnival celebrations in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil …

Most countries that celebrate Carnival for one week. But in Uruguay the party lasts for over a month.

I just missed it in Montevideo, but had a good close look at Carnival in Colonia, Uruguay. Sat for at least an hour on cobblestones on the street as the dancers passed.

There are beautiful women — and men — on display. But it seemed to me any extrovert willing to put on an outlandish costume or beat on a drum can join one of the troops. Any age. Any body type. All in good fun.
