By simple words I would describe Carnival in Latin America such as the dance and fun of colors. I remember that in Czech Republic we do have something similar called “Masopust” the time when we get dressed and have fun on the street. In case Of Latin America was the tradition brought by missionaries from Spain and Italy. But the big advantage of local celebration is weather. Here we do not have to think how the weather will be and that”s why which kind of customs we should choose. Here is such grate weather and conditions that you can let your imagination run and create any kind of customs for yourself.
The Carnival is celebrated in the two levels. One is by adults which remained in its pure quality only in Brasil, where people get basically naked and dance on the street their souls out and sweat blood :). In Venezuela and other neighboring countries they stopped to celebrate carnival in such a spectacular way because of robberies and steeling. Adults usually celebrate with their friends in the beach. Take a drinks and have fun in the sea side. The colorful way of celebrating carnival remained only for the kids. It is big fun to see on the streets and shopping molls different fairy tales characters who interact with kids and make them laugh. Nearly every part of city Caracas prepared carnival celebration with games and performances for kids. We have visited municipality Chacao which always keeps nice and wild celebrations. As you can see Edie was enjoying his time with another kids as we were.
