I’ll be honest. I enjoyed the Rotterdam carnival day and route so much more than Berlin carnival day. I’m still trying to figure out why. Woke up early to have something to eat before the day starts (the lining of the stomach ), get ready and head out to the route. Not in costume this time round, just the triniconnection t-shirt.
Lord it was hot! Our band was allocated a number 21 and it is found pretty quickly. However, the band is not quite ready to head on out. There’s a lot of liming and catching up taking place. And I roam. To see what the other bands and costumes are like. And they are so varied with so many different themes and cultures represented. Maybe it’s just me (and I really didn’t roam as much in Berlin) but the costumes appears to be a lot.. more.. in Rotterdam, more creative, more vibrant, a bit more interesting. I really really should have taken more pictures.
