These pictures were taken in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I’ve been living for the past few months. The first five are from a street party that was part of Carnaval, a festival that happens in many South American countries right before Lent. Carnaval is celebrated with parades, music, dancing, and the spraying of nieve (literally “snow,” but essentially foam) at all the revelers.
