There is a first time for everything; today and tomorrow I am experiencing the ‘proper’ way to celebrate carnival. This means that I am ‘South of the big rivers’, in Oosterhout, uhhhh, Kaaiendonk as the city is called these days. Most companies are closed and everyone is in carnival mood for five days….part 1, this afternoon: people dressed up in the most creative outfits, beer, a parade with amazing vehicles (see pictures below!), beer, sunshine, beer and great company…so far I really enjoy the carnival tradition!!
