Last night we took the kids down to Little Italy for their "family friendly" Carnevale.
It was crowded with people in costumes and masks and entertainers.
The man shook Naomi's hand (she was dressed in her princess ball gown from Halloween).
Face painting and balloons!

The stores were giving out snacks, chocolates, and of course Mardi Gras beads. With street performers everywhere, and chocolate in our tummies in was like wandering the streets of Bariloche in the summer. It was a really nice evening out.

Happy Valentines Day to everyone!
"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
