I am a little late getting out this photos of Santa Elena Carnival
Here they have the carnival parades one week after Merida . I am not sure why but it is so .
I went down the one night becuase I heard it was the parade of the third age .Third age is what they call people over 70 it has such a ring to it in Spanish, Trecera Edad and it is so much more flattering than saying the old folks.
Everyone was in a happy mood….. the bright lights, the music and the colourful outfits . Who couldnt be infectious with all these sights and sounds happening .
So I just snapped happily away and here are the results . It may not be as flashy as the Carnival in Merida but the people are just as proud
