Carnaval Dispatch

My friend Aji is going to Mardi Gras. Don’s getting married. Jessica’s birthday approaches. It’s definitely a hard-partying party February. Here is my teenage sister Isabella’s report on Carnaval from Spain…

Hi guys!! Last night was Carnaval. It was, in a word, crazy. But,
in another word, awesome. LOL.

We went out at about 10 or so, and got back home at 5:30 in the
morning. There were lights in all the streets that said Carnaval
with musical notes. Every discoteca had its music blaring, every
person was dancing. There was outdoor music too.

There were tons of creative costumes, people really go all out for
this. Cows, clowns, M&Ms, nuns, men dressed as nuns, drag queens
(including a Snow White in drag), devils, angels, cowboys and girls,
gypsies, cleopatras, the Jackson five, hippies, shakespearean
characters complete with codpieces, cell phones, nurses, doctors,
Wheres Waldo, pirates (including one guy who looked just like Johnny
Depp with the moustache pigtails except he wasnt as cute) chickens,
Jesus etc etc. My friend max was just a weird guy in a black robe
with a scream mask and a funny hat.

So we all dressed up, went to a discoteca after walking like twenty
miles (my feet were killing me ) and danced, and danced, and danced.
The stupid discoteca people played the same cd like ten times, but we
had paid 3 euros to get in, so we stayed. All in all, it was tons of
fun and i loved it!!!!!!!!!!

I slept late this morning, which was good considering how late i’d
been up. Then I woke up, had lunch (i missed breakfast, haha!) and
we went out shopping again. I got a present for someone. OOooooh i
wonder who it is. You’ll find out soon enough. ;)

Tonight i don’t think we’re doing anything because we’re all so
tired. On Weds morning we’re leaving for Barcelona!!!!!!!!!! It
seems like we’ve been here for a long time, and yet too short. I’m
saving all sorts of stuff to make a scrapbook, like pamphlets from
museums and stuff.

I love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and miss you
besos y abrazos, isa
