Carnival was yesterday and today. Mostly that's meant we've avoided going anywhere, which hasn't been hard because the embassy's been closed. (It's on the savannah, which is the middle of all the action.) We've watched some of the parades on television, though.
The international school had its own Carnival jump-up Friday. They tend to take the international aspect of it all a bit far, and the first-graders were assigned the theme Seasons of Canada. (I saw on the list that another grade had something to do with hurricanes.) But at least Laura got to paint a T-shirt and get some glitter on her cheeks.
