Since I'm late posting today (this vacation is getting exhausting :-)!!), I thought y'all deserved a treat. The 5-day Carnaval festival began yesterday and these are two decorations in Plaza Machado, the main square in El Centro. Note the sizes compared with the people sitting on the park benches. Tonight we're going to the Coronation, and tomorrow we'll try to get within viewing distance of the Parade! Stay tuned!!
