Carnival may be coming to a close all around the world, but that only means it’s time now to start booking that trip for next year. But don’t think you’re forced to head to Rio or New Orleans (is anyone really forced to go either of these two places). As this article points out, raucous celebrations are held in Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland and Russia, just to name a few of the larger ones.
Of course, that old standby in New Orleans still delivers “X-rated flesh-fests on Bourbon Street” and the arrival of “the king and queen of Zulu . . .and Rex, the king of Carnival . . .to officially kick off Mardi Gras” in Woldenberg Park. And only one shooting this year, not bad.
