A couple weeks ago I attempted to experience Carnevale in Venice. I can't say it was at all enjoyable unless you particularly like seeing nothing but the back of the person against whom you're smashed while having no control over where you go as you're completely at the will of the mass.
I only managed a couple pictures as I had not the will to fight the masses. Honestly, I have no desire to experience that ever again. Surely I'll go to Venice many more times but I'll make a point of not going when there's a big event happening!
|It took so long to get here (St. Mark's Square) that we missed the main event (Flight of the Angel).|
|Masks are a big part of the Carnevale celebration. I took this one on the train using my phone. I don't know why it looks almost water-colored...probably just because I have a cheap little phone without a good camera.|
|I was right, they are basically little fried doughnuts but with raisins and cream. Much like the Carnevale festival itself, I've no need to experience these again.|
How do you feel about big crowded festivals? Have you ever been to Carnevale?
