Some years ago, for the first time, I had to work during the Carnival. I was in the north of Germany and it was cold! But, we were determined to make the best of the non working hours we had. So we asked around and we were told that there was some interesting Carnival on an nearby city, Köln. The experience began on the highway where we could see entire families properly masquerade for the occasion inside the cars (very hard to miss :)). When we arrive we were amazed with all the special customs and the joy on the air. We watched closely the parade. I was amazed that even with a small compact camera people would stop and pose for me! Suddenly everything ended too soon, due to the cold (the highest of the day was -2 celsius). One should never stop being amazed with new things :)
