Carnival (Fasching) in Ulm, Germany, 1987

It begins at 11:11 ate.m. on November 11. The weather isn’t great that time of year in Bavaria, but the tradition of talking back to rulers, the parody of pomp, the election of the Lord and Lady of Misrule have been deeply ingrained since the Middle Ages. This good burgher has only dyed her hair, but the next slides capture more — hard to believe it was 25 years ago.
