Viareggio Carnivale!!!

For the first time ever I experienced a ride in a train. We traveled by train to Viareggio, a beach town west of Florence. We were ecstatic to have some fun and to look at all the amazing and creative costumes.

As soon as we arrived, the enthusiasm was contagious. People were dressed up in artistic costumes and masks, and the animated floats were awesome! People were singing, dancing, playing music, and throwing confetti everywhere...we had a marvelous time!

Even Miss Italy was there!

Obama is really popular here!
