Pust is Slovenian word for Lent, Fasching, Carneval, whatever you call it (does Shrove Saturday exist?), the time when masks are put on to scare away winter and welcome spring.
This is what we were doing two weeks ago in Orbetello 15 minutes away at the little carnival for three coins, which is what Carnevaleto da tre soldi means. It was repeated last Sunday and will be held tomorrow again.
We were not masked but there were plenty who were, mostly kids but some adults too. And then there was the parade with several floats as I now know they are called.
The first post from there is here, and today follow some of the best characters spotted in the crowd. Let’s blow this winter to pieces! This is for you, Canada!
