A tango friend went to Venice for Carnival and just sent me these photos!
They show a whole other side to Carnival than the Murgas, Comparsas, and Carnivales of Argentina. But then down here below the Equator, we are getting ready to celebrate Easter in the autumn, and south is up on the map, the stars in the sky are upside down, and water runs down the drain in the opposite direction--or so they say.
And there up north, Carnival is in the middle of wintertime.
Carnival in Venice, especially in a snowfall, must seem truly like another mystical world.

Sure would be hard to dance the samba though in these outfits!
