A slightly icy Mardi Gras

That's what we suddenly found going on right outside our door yesterday afternoon. It was the competition of the bands, which I'd forgotten happens at this time of the year. Always something - Prague knows how to have some sort of large communal party every month of the year, and January NEEDS something bright and cheerful.

In very Central European fashion the bands came mainly from Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Czech. The costumes were, well, bizarrely wonderful and there is nothing (really, nothing) like hearing Ravel's Bolero played on a moving glockenspiel. Wouldn't have missed it for the world.

Here is a taste:


Gnomes
