Carnaval en Canarana

Carnival is this week, from Friday night to next Wednesday afternoon (Ash Wednesday), ringing in the start of Lent. Even small frontier towns like mine (Canarana, population 17K) have epic throw downs that take over life for the entire week – music, dancing, food, drinks and mini parades weaving through the entire shebang put on by local groups known as “blocos.” This is a scene from the edge of the outdoor dancefloor at Saturday night’s festivities.
