Some photos from yesterday’s carnival

Yesterday was Carnival, the day before Clean Monday and the start of Lent. The day didn't start off in a very promising fashion with a huge deluge of rain and hail. There was so much of it that at one point I could barely see the house opposite and for a while it looked like there was snow on the ground.

You should have been able to catch some on the Symi Visitor webcam as the events took place right outside Sunflower laundry and Pachos'.

I was using the long lens so was a bit close to the dancing at some points. Hopefully Neil will send me some of his photos later this morning and I can add them for tomorrow.

It was good to see that after the first dance the audience started joining in.)

  1. That’s Notis Sfiaganakis in the hood, right? Seriously, Neil is not a good photographer, he’s an excellent one!!
