Masopust/Eurocarnival 2010

In what was supposed to be the largest carnival celebration in Europe, yesterday was the last day of Masopust. For an excellent description of this holiday-slash-celebration, go here. Long story short, it’s the start of Lent, but without the religion.

And, because one thousand people have hit this page, here is a link to a bunch of pictures I took yesterday of the costumed celebrants.
