while it seems that in the UK, they mostly celebrate pancake day.... i have to say i'm highly partial to the more festive mardi gras carnival celebrations!! i'll still be eating (perfect) pancakes tomorrow, but i might have to dress up to do it!
i've been listening to some great new orleans music from NOLA radio all day to get in the mood! now i want to cook a gumbo or etouffee!
here are a few photos of the carnival floats in sao paulo, brasil that i saw in 2007.
