Yesterday marked the end of Carnival. Carnival is the celebration immediately before lent. It's an excuse to party before you have to give everything up for lent! Here in Ecuador it's all about water fights, which sometimes can turn into people throwing oil, eggs, flour, etc. Anyone on the street is fair game! At Nate Saint Memorial school we have a water day the Friday before Carnival. The kids love it! They split into two teams and have organized games until the very end, and then it's a free for all!
