Mas Carnaval

It's a rainy day, so I finally got around to editing my video from las llamadas.

And I have a photo album of various carnival events.

Great pictures! How's your spanish? Do you understand everything when you go to tablados?
Thanks Gabo.

My Spanish is okay for everyday use (shopping, catching a bus, etc) but I don't come close to understanding everything at the tablados. If anything is subtle, or if it involves a play on words, I miss it.

Beyond the language, I'm not familiar enough with local politics to follow much of the political humor. All in all, I might understand 10% of the jokes.

While I don't understand much, I really enjoy the spectacle-- the costumes, the make-up, the dancing, and the music.
I read in a "you tube" comment that you are becomming a "gringo-murguero".
I am sure when you go back to the states and you are covered in snow next february you will be thinking of "the tablados" "medio i medio" and "los murguistas",wishing it was carnaval all over again.
