I completely forgot that there was going to be a little carnival procession parade passing by my apartment. I was in my apartment watching the Friday edition of the soap opera “Days Of Our Lives” which I’ve been watching since I was a young ‘un. Anyhow, I heard the noise and ran to put some clothes on and run down to the street to get a few pictures.
Here is my video. It feels like the movie “The Wizard Of Oz” / “El Mago De Oz” when Dorothy opened the door of her damaged house and the movie turned from black and white to color…lol
I opened the gate and who was standing right in front of me but Lolito Flochón the plumber. According to local legend no one could start Carnival partying without Lolito Flochón permission so I was in luck that he was the first character I saw.
I got out there as the end of the parade was passing by. I’m always late.
When I ran down the stairs I left the door to the apartment open so Buenagente could come outside. I knew Teli wouldn’t come but Buena always enjoys some action in the street. I didn’t see him so looked up at the window and he was there barking like crazy.
I called him and he came running down.
There was lots of fun in the street, LOUD music and drumming.
I liked this picture.
The Carnival passed with the Bomberos / Firemen following in the rear. Zippy and Buenagente are all content. I know Inteliperra is hiding under the bedside table in her favorite hidey spot.
Time to go back up the stairs to finish watching “Days Of Our Lives”. So, these are the Days Of My Life.
Here is my picture collection from the Carnaval Ciudad Colonial 2013
