The theme last year was "India", hence the Indians, elephant, Taj Mahal etc. It was so different to the Brazilian theme, but just as lovely. This year it's "islands from around the world". I shall be there. It starts from the 16th of February to the 6th of March and is well worth experiencing. It is unique and is getting more and more popular. The oranges and lemons are attached by rubber bands and every day are checked and replaced if they are rotten. This is the lot of my carnival photos for now. I will be putting up the next lot after the carnival is finished.
