Mardi Gras!

In St Martin Carnaval started yesterday night!!!
Every tuesday, they close the main boulevard of Grand Case for the next 2 month.
Is very cool!
I guess when you live on the island for many years, you don't even want to hear about the 2 month of Mardi Gras of Grand Case, you just want to have a quiet evening even on Tuesdays!

For us, yesterday, it was the perfect excuse to go out!

The boulevard was full of people and stands selling the more random stuff ever.

A lot of amazing artists, doing very original stuff,painting, photos, necklaces, clothes... and of course food!!
Food from everywhere! From Argentina, Spain, France, local food (chicken and beans, very original!).

We had a great time!

The funniest, was to see the "parade". All dressed with very bright colours and feders...
Here some local woman are very big... I wouldn't like to fight them, that's for sure, so they look like big fat pink pigeons!!!
