¡Carnaval!

A glimpse into the madness that was Carnaval in Cadiz. Outside of the Canary Islands (Tenerife to be exact), this is the biggest carnival in Spain, and honestly–it is crazy. Like Halloween but more lewd and colder, and with more people peeing in the street. Also: SO MUCH BROKEN GLASS.

San Blas!!! GOOD GOD

Oh my god. I am terrified right now. To give you an idea of what is going on in celebration of the town’s patron saint, please watch this video.

This would be fun if there were people around, but all the teachers have abandoned the town so I am alone! Since this is way too weird and scary of a thing to do on my own and since all the teachers advised it, I am going home to Baeza for the night. I’ll return tomorrow at the height of the madness, with fingers crossed that I don’t get incinerated.
