Days 374 - 380 (slightly out of order I think!) Here I am in full Karnival Regalia. First for the local parade on Sunday, which is a very fun community event. We invited various cousins and family members over, watched the parade and had a BBQ where I created authentic "Aussie Burgers" for all. It was 15 degrees (almost 20 degrees warmer than the same day last year!) so we were able to sit out in the sunshine. The next day we headed to the Rosen Montag (Rose Monday) parade in a small town called Selingenstadt, which hosts this very professional and elaborate parade featuring more than 100 floats, bands, groups of dancing girls, costumes of every description. Every single person in the crowd had a costume, or at least a funny hat or bit of glitter on their face. It was an amazing experience (although it had turned cold again and the parade is long. 4 hours is a long time to stand on cobble stones in a hawaiian shirt!)

Looks like you've been having fun.

Although, in one of your photos if you hadn't had the stubble you were looking a little Frank Thring! I think it was the looking down the nose view of the picture and the goatee more than anything else! In that one it didn't look as if fun had been had.
