Boo-A-Hoo!


Saturday was to be the last big night for Carnival 2008 in Gualeguaychu. Every Saturday for 2 months, the place goes crazy with a parade of scantily clad dancers in traditional carnival costume, watched by thousands of people, partying till the wee hours. The festival basically involves women wearing no more than 30 sq. cm of glittery transparent material, gyrating their hips in a provocative manner, to the deafening sound of carnival music being blasted from a massive truck full of speakers, while throngs of onlookers watch,drool and drink on the sidelines. All good clean fun, to be sure, to be sure!

The town, situated on a river was fairly small and despite the frequent rain showers, there was a good buzz around the place in anticipation of a long fun night ahead. There was a big beach party to get things warmed up beforehand which was completely packed with young ladies being ogled and cheered at by older men. I only ogled, no cheering, honest! Half an hour before the official kickoff (10.30pm) of the main event we got the news the party was postponed for a day due to rain. Despite this setback, it was a fun night and a short visit to the casino brought some respite and a small profit. The following day brought more rain and more bad news. The last day of Carnival 2008 was officially canceled due to wet weather! Sob sob, boo hoo!
It was a tad disappointing but an enjoyable experience nevertheless.

Aww shame, never mind, you might just make it back for Paddys weekend...plenty of naked pissed women around here, and rain, you'd be right at home!

Queenie: I hear the Paddies day festivities go on for a week now in Dublin - fireworks, green Liffey water n' all - you're right - I'm gettin' homesick!

Aww they're spoil sports, I would have thought a bunch of gyrating scantily clad women glistening with raindrops would have been spectacular, the Argentinian version of a wet T shirt competition . . well for a bloke perhaps!

What on earth is Green Liffy Water?

pardon my oirish maths but if a 17 year old girl gives birth to two sets of triplets, doesn't that make a total of six kids, not seven? - big brother dog hater

Baino: The Liffey is the filthy brownish river that flows thru the centre of Dublin. On Paddies Day/Week it is dyed green and looks even more toxic than normal!

Noel aka Big Brother Dog Hater of Stranded in the Desert: fame.. ah so you didn't click on the link then.... She had her first kid at 14 then 2 sets of triplets = 7
