It's party time!

Well, carnival is here again...hard to believe Easter is less than 40 short days away! With one 2-year old and a 9-month old, I'm trying to work out whether or not to brave the crowds that mill around on the days of the parade with the two of them, dressed up or otherwise. I may wimp out...after all, it has been a hard year so far and we're only 7 weeks into it!

Prior to having kids I never really got into the whole carnival thing, content to stay at home and do anything else but attend the festivities, but now, well, it's different. Although the hotels in Benalmadena - and the tourist region on the whole - aren't specifically busier, it does seem as though there are more people around, so maybe it's just that the people who are living here are getting out and about a bit more, I don't know.

Either way, although it's not Rio, carnival time is a great excuse for a party...regardless of whether or not it takes place with a procession down the main street or in front of the TV! :-)

Have a good one...I know I will! :-)
