Well, after experiencing Carnaval de Nice, I got to experience Carnaval à la Rouvière at the high school where I work today!
Carnaval is typically held ten days before Easter, and the students and staff alike arrive in costumes (they have been talking about their déguisements since November.) There was also a flashmob organized on YouTube, and then during the afternoon, we had one big costume party!
Carnaval reminded me a bit of American Homecoming Spirit Week, mais à la française, bien sur.

I cannot believe that next week is my last week of work. I am going to miss my school, my colleagues, my job, and my students.
