Voordat

Back in Maastricht: back to cold, to snow flurries, to slippery streets…

…to Carnivale!

The annual feestje comes very early this year and bundled up costumes mimicking fattened performers and rounded vegetables seem likely to dominate.  The flags are out, the bars are decorated, and the shops are filled with people seeking the perfect costume. 

At 35-50 euro per suit, it can be an expensive quest.

There are grand decorations in the station lobby; the moosewief is surrounded by decorations.  The plazas are still empty, quiet in the falling snow at dusk. 

But only until tomorrow evening.
