We went to the first Carnaval parade yesterday afternoon. We didn’t go to this one last year, as there’s another parade that passes right through Olas Altas that seemed more like “our” parade. I am really glad we went, though. Afterwards we walked into the Carnaval area, paid our 20 pesos, and watched them setting up for the evening. We sat over a couple of beverages, and somehow got sidetracked by the main stage band and ended up dancing our rears off!
Today was a recovery day. I’ve put all the pictures in the Carnaval photo gallery, so I’ll just put a few teasers here. I only took a couple short videos but they are fun, too. Maybe I’ll post them tomorrow.
Tonight we’re off to Avenida del Mar where we will hang out with friends in a beach palapa and watch the second fireworks show.
