Carnaval seems to have been a big bust in Cancun, at least from the word on the street. The only thing I saw that was Carnaval related was the beer ads on the buses. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the city changed the dates of the event to fit in the upcoming election (which means a "dry law", who can do Carnaval without booze?) Wayne has a great report on the less than stellar events on Isla Mujeres up at his blog, check it out for far more pics than I am about to present.
Max had a Carnaval party at his school yesterday so Mami Canuck had to make him a costume. This is not my forte, but here is what I whipped up for 69 pesos and some glue (no-sew costumes are a speciality of mine, the simpler, the better!). Here he is in all his shiny glory....
I hope next year it's a bigger better deal and we'll be out in full force with camera in hand to give you the full report. Heck, maybe I will invest in a sewing machine this year and make him a real kick ass costume (no thongs or pasties unfortunately which is all I could think of when given the task of making a Carnaval costume).
