Carnival Time

We visited good friends--we'd spent five years together in Japan--in The Netherlands on Sunday.  It happened to be the day of the year when cities and towns host their own "Carnaval" parades, which tend to be--in true Carnival fashion--wildly-creative, silly, and fun.  Merkelbeek's celebration didn't disappoint; the village parade came right down the street in front of our friends' house, so that was an unexpected treat for us.















The beer was flowing, but everyone behaved, at least temporarily.  I would say a good time was had by all, wouldn't you?
