This is my hometown in the south of Holland. These are the people I loved meeting.
Each year, for months these men and women are creating and constructing the large puppet parade for celebrating the catholic fest of Carnaval and make magic happen. Some of the builders do not even celebrate Carnaval as they think the construction is more important . The construction of these immense puppets and animals is quite a social happening. Builders compete, celebrate christmas and live their social live for months in this environment.
to be continued.
