Yesterday, we were in Flic-en-Flac to enjoy the carnival! I took many pictures and I’ve just uploaded them to Flickr for your enjoyment. The costumes were very interesting (e.g. the African tribe), the Brazilian dancers and musicians were great (and very photographer friendly) and the various Misses all beautiful (with a special mention to the Indian Miss naturally!).
The traffic though was absolutely abysmal.
It took more than one and a half hour to get there as there were simply too many cars converging to Flic-en-Flac. And, at the end of the carnival, the traffic jams were the worst I’ve ever experienced in my life! Whoever decided that the carnival was going to be held in Flic-en-Flac (which has the peculiarity of being served by one road only) and didn’t plan for the traffic did an act of negligence. It was a nightmare!
Once again, planning was lacking.
