A number of events took place whilst we were in Toulouse. The military parade and the street carnival ended a day that can hardly be categorized as usual. It was just our luck that the street carnival had been postponed one week because of bad weather and so we were in the right place at the right time.
The military parade was a wonderful exhibition of traditional military garments and weaponry of not only French troops, but Spanish, Catalan, Italian and British as well.
The carnival was your "ordinary" street manifestation, filled with vivid and creative costumes, loud and colorful floats and people from all over united under the banners of diversity and joy.
