Mardi Gras

Originally uploaded by Ross Fowler

Mardi Gras in New Orleans is wonderful! More original fun there and local music joy than in the touristic magnets in Brazil: Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo etc. are dominated by a sort of business and slavery. Carnival in Europe does not have the attraction of good music at all. The carnival acts in Germany, yesterday in Cologne, Duesseldorf and Mainz are attractive because the present some critical political statements – for example about the swindle of the German ex-minister of defense, zu Guttenberg. But the music? Oh no. And: no boobs at all in Germany, to cold outside. 10 Celsius. 30 Celsius in Brazil on the same day. But no Hurricane Katrina flood can destroy the joy of: New Orleans Mardi Grass

    This Mari Gras is new to me. I learned something today, yippie. Sometimes I feel so left out, I never travel and Know not much of other cultures and other traditions. This was quite refreshing. Even if my video’s play s l o w…it’s worth the watch.
