The days of "Carnaval" are the days right before lent begins. Here in Ecuador the people play water games before things "calm down" during lent. We Farnsworths joined in the fun with our home school helper Isabel from Germany, getting soaked for a fun afternoon. Marisol took the pictures this time.
