I was watching a TV program awhile ago and found out that the famous carnival in Rio de Janiero in Brazil is almost over as well. It is the same in Germany. Today is called Faschingsdienstag or Shrove Tuesday. It means that Aschermittwoch (Ash Wednesday) is about to come, thus ending the Faschingszeit or carnival time.
I already witnessed a lot of carnival celebrations in particularly in Bavaria, Germany. It is not really as big as in Cologne, Mainz or Dusseldorf but they are all worth-seeing.
Here are some of the images I took in one of the Faschingszug or carnival parade in Bavaria.
