Carnival de Nice (Nice is Nice)

We went to the Carnival de Nice this past Sunday, it’s a week long festival and considered to be the largest carnival in the world. You guys in Tampa will understand it as Gasparilla with Nuns and LSD-inspired floats replacing pirates and silly string/confetti in place of beads. It’s outstanding and we got in a silly-string war with these two sweet little French girls; Fiona and Framboise. It was gross and rainy all day but just like most of Tampa the people of Nice shrugged it off and stuck it out for the whole day. The carnival was truly a miraculous experience and silly stringing random strangers is incredibly fun.
