San Pedro Carnival Continues

Lots of businesses have covered up their signs and advertising posters against paint damage. This has not stopped some very naughty people from ripping the plastic covering and splashing paint on the expensively appointed signs.

As usual our valued tourists are bemused and a bit embarrassed with the painting “tradition” which never used to happen years ago. Oh for the days of flour and perfumed eggs. Carnival had more charm in those days…now it’s just plain bedlam.

Why don’t the authorities insist on proper body paint only….some of this house paint that the kids use is toxic…it contains tropical anti-fungal chemicals. At least with a “body paint only” rule businesses could hose off on Wednesday morning…instead our town will look bloody awful for weeks and months to come.
