Carnival 2012

A couple of weekends ago was Carnival weekend in Malta. We checked out the festivities in Valletta and Floriana on Sunday afternoon, anticipating we would also pop by for the grand finale parade and fireworks on Tuesday. But Mother Nature had other things in mind. It poured on Tuesday and the finale was cancelled.

I can't remember the last time there were so many consecutive cloudy and rainy days in Malta. But now Carnival, cancelled?

Go away winter.

carnival summed up in one photo: colourful and plastic.
imqaret, deep fried date filled pastries, are a traditional maltese snack.

  2. These are amazing photos! Beautifully captured. My husband's mom lives on an island in Mexico and they go all out with elaborate floats for the occasion too.


Let's talk.
