  The marimonda costumes
by Lodestar

well, there are no words to describe that event. in case you have the oportunitygo to b/quilla at the end of february or beginninf of march (depending on when the carnival takes place). what is it all about? four days full of drinking, dancing, maizena, half-naked people, music, parades, colours, parties etc. b/quilla carnival is said to be the best one in s-america, after the rio de janero carnival, so don't miss it. and most of it is free of charge.... just people coming together and having tons of fun...
