We went to Binche (pronounced Baaaaanssh; hard A) today to celebrate Carnaval. It involved alot of oranges being thrown, mostly overhand, at/to the crowd. There were no injuries in our area, but plenty of general merriment, and jockeying for position.

Did I mention everyone was in bizarre traditional costumes stuffed with straw, and gigantic furry white tentacle hats? I didn’t? Oh. There were those things, and it was party.
