Phew!


I took this picture at the same carnival where I found the young masquerader. It was 11 PM at the time, the floats had been on the road for almost 3 hours, and this young man's float had just been given the much awaited STOP order. I just love the expression on his face! You can click on the photo to enlarge it.
