Carnival all over the world

From Sao Paolo, Brazil:

From Tenerife in the Canary Islands:

From Oristano in western Sardinia:

I don't want to post more, due to copyright considerations (fair use of a few is OK, but no more than that). Click here to see the whole collection. It's very interesting viewing.

Oh - on second thought, I simply have to post one more, specially for the benefit of the beautiful and gracious Phlegm. She's into shoes, so this should be an eye-opener for her! From Las Palmas in the Canary Islands:

Eat your heart out, Phlegmmy!
