Iberian Mask Festival 2013 (1 of 4)




 
Spain and Portugal's very old traditions on the streets of downtown Lisbon
 
It was such a great party! The variety of masks and outfits was amazing (I took 324 shots!). This series will be just a very small sample, of course. :-)

This is new to me - and truly wonderful! What a treat to see it. Perfect eye candy.

Re your unemployment comments: Am I overly paranoid to wonder if slow-moving disasters like this aren't allowed because they're benefitting those who can profit from it?
