Aruba, Central America

Oranjestad ~ February 2014


18

In 2014 Aruba celebrated it´s 60th edition of the Carnival Parade. The main street in the downtown area called Oranjestad was full with colors and very well done costumes, the music was loud and exciting, and a lot of people danced to it. This guy was one of the happiest I saw and he really seemed to be enjoying himself. I loved the party, but have to say I was a little disapointed with all the marketing involved in it, which takes a little of the magic away.

Em 2014, Aruba comemorou a 60a edição de seu desfile de carnaval. A rua principal na área central, chamada Oranjestad, estava repleta de cores e fantasias super elaboradas, a música estava alta e animada, e muita gente dançando. Esse rapaz foi um dos mais felizes que eu vi, e parecia estar se divertindo bastante. Adorei a festa, mas confesso que fiquei um pouco decepcionada com tanto marketing envolvido nela, o que tira um pouco da mágica da celebração como um todo.
