Contessa, your photos (and Colin's) of the CARNAVAL parade are STUNNING! Thank you for sharing. I was with friends a short distance from the Hacienda, and there were too many people ducking under the rope to stand and dance in the street for me to get any decent photos. I tried out my new Sony Bloggie cam, and have posted a few short videos on my FB page, but that's about it. So, I really enjoyed seeing what you got. Thank you both for sharing your photos!
