Yes, Fasching or carnival season is here again especially in the German-speaking countries like in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. I was watching some Fasching or carnival shows in a Germany television awhile ago and I was quite entertain with it. I actually love it better when I see it in person.
As you know this season is also the season to have fun. One reason why I love witnessing Fasching or Carnival parade in Germany is watching the street entertainers especially the musicians who are performing with their musical instruments like portable keyboard, guitars, drums, cymbals and more. If you witness any carnival parade in Germany or any countries celebrating it, you will surely have fun!

It was a wonderful day despite the cloudy weather in Budweis, known as České Budějovice in Czech language. Visiting the largest city in the South Bohemian Region as well as its political and commercial capital was a lot of fun. I did enjoyed my walk in the area especially at the Ottokar II Square where the Christmas market is currently held.
The building with the 3 towers is the Town Hall with its murals and bronze gargoyles, and the 16th century Black Tower (“Černá věž”).
