Viva Carnaval

Carnaval, the legendary Latin American celebration, is a party in the truest sense of the word, replete with tradition, culture, food and the incredible pervasive attitude of an entire continent enjoying itself. I spent a few days in Esmeraldas, a city on the North-West coast of Ecuador, taking in all that Carnaval had to offer. I dodged water fights, saw some singing and some dancing, ate copious amounts of meat on little sticks, and enjoyed the best of Afro-Ecuadorian culture.
