Carnival begins

And so it begins 40 days of parades and lots of drums. I can hear the
drum beating away now, probably along the main road through the old
city, 18 De Julio.
As I walked to work I saw vendors setting up at Parque Rodo, handmade
crafts and lots of Virgin Mary stuff. Also saw someone selling little
Styrofoam boats that I gather is to light something up and set it
afloat, what I don't know.

Also saw another large cruise ship pulling into port and when I got off
work plenty of tourists strolling about.
