This is another statue that was placed strategically up and down the Malecon during Carnaval. This photo with spectators gives an idea of the statues' scale.

oh you are missing some major snow removal. It just turned midnight, but I already have a three day weekend in place because of our current snow storm.

Enjoy the wonderful weather as wifey and I are hurting for a get away right now. [we usually take one in February, but we have our extra money involved in LPN to RN nursing school for my dear wifey.

Yet another marvellous photograph from your beautiful part of the world. Love the way the blue of his trousers picks up the blue of the sky.

it is interesting the statues that are part of the celebration. I wonder if they have a special significance.

Is it a blown up balloon statue? I see the lines attached to it to prevent it from floating away.
