|Jasenka, my favorite Czech Folk group|
Here we are at Fašanky, the Wallachian word for the pre-Lenten Carnival, dancing and singing and playing up a storm in traditional costumes.
|That's meat on those swords--|
Czech sausage that people might give up for Lent
|Though my students and friends can't tell me why, |
the bear is a traditional mascot of Carnival (Masopust) here.
And the pig's fun too.
|Serious Mafia-like pall-bearers with the bass on their shoulders|
