Start of carnival!

Wow, it happened right outside the window during lesson 7! We heard the drumming getting closer then it stopped right outside our first floor window.

When the drumming stopped a guy starting talking. In Maltese of course so the Maltese speakers had to translate for me.  He was proclaiming the rules of carnival. Maybe that should have capitals… proclaiming The Rules of Carnival.  One I particularly liked was that carnival costumes must not be worn after 7pm.  How times change!   After all the dignitaries had gone into the Opera House, the first float came past.  Now I know they are massive but I didn’t exactly realise how massive!

The plan was to leave Tripoli in 2012, head home to Malta and set up a calligraphy business but it's all happened a bit quicker!
