Colombian Carnival

Carnival in Barranquilla, Colombia is the second largest in the world. My expectations of attending Carnival was basically seeing endless colorful parades. It was much much more then that. What I discovered instead was a cultural celebration that overtook the entire city of barranquilla. In this celebration were endless block parties, concerts and a lot of drinking. It was a total blast.

Here are the photos I did capture of the parades.
