    Carnival - Las Tablas, Panama

    Earlier in February I traveled to the second largest Carnival celebration in the world, held over five day in the rural town of Las Tablas, Panama, four hours drive from the capital. Tens of thousands gathered in the town square to see the queens from Calle Arriba and Calle Abajo battle for the crown. Water tankers lined the streets during the day, spraying the crowds as queens and floats and musicians danced past. At night the two factions’ supporters would set off the most awesome and dangerous display of fireworks that I have ever seen. By most accounts, Calle Arriba won.  

    February 8-13, 2013.
