FOWC with Fandango: Euphoric

Fasnacht 28.02 (4)

Our town will become euphoric in a week’s time because the carnival begins. My only interest is to take a few photos of the participants, otherwise it is too much noise and excitement for me. There will be two processions with accompanying loud music and of course the kids will be enjoying it, being able to dress up in their costumes. There will also be a few costumed balls for the adults and the restaurants will be open almost all night for the carnival visitors.

I remember the time when I was a member of the work force and those that decided to combine work with carnival usually fell asleep at their work place if they were not clever enough to take the week off.

FOWC with Fandango: Euphoric

  1. Thanks for sharing this piece. I grew up in cities that don’t do carnaval, so I clealry remember the first time I was in a town that did during the celebration. It was pure chaos. This was in a town near Kleve, Germany, where my now husband lived at the time. Though Nijmegen, the major city across the German/Dutch border I lived in at the time, does carnaval Too, it wasn’t nearly as big as in that town. I can still hear the song played on one of the procession wagons at a way too early hour for my liking on a Sunday (ie. before noon). Dein Schwester ist ein richtig geiles Luder (not sure I spelled it correctly).

    • I grew up in London where there is absolutely no carnival and only got to know it when I came to Switzerland. Then I married a Swiss and in our area carnival is a big thing. I am sure it can be fun, but I never really enjoyed it. My only fun today is with the camera.
