The past week at school has gone largely unblogged because we’ve been catching up on Venezuela and La Guajira. And now we’re off to Barranquilla for three days to participate in the world’s second largest Caranaval (second to Rio de Janeiro).

Broadly, Caranaval is a celebration of it not being Lent yet. And therefore of overindulgence in things you might not do during lent: drinking, eating, dancing and such. We’ll tell you about it when we return. In the meantime here’s a selection of masks the kids made in art class. Masks are a key Carnaval ingredient.
