El Lunes, Vamos en Pijamas!

I'm not sure what I'm going to do when Ash Wednesday hits and I have to go back to school and give up staying out all night in costume. Carnaval is still going strong here in Santiago. Tonight my friends and I are going out in pajamas, mainly because the girls I've been with are sick of painting their faces to look like cats, nobody wants to wear heels, and it's entirely too cold to go out in a small, sparkly dress. I have thoroughly enjoyed being out of school but still in Santiago during the week; this was a prime time for travel, but staying here has paid off.

Tomorrow is the big day, the culmination of the Carnaval festivities, including a parade. Lent begins Wednesday, and life will go back to normal.
