Venetians are getting upset that there are so many tourists coming in for Carnival... but I could have sworn that Carnival had pretty much died off but was brought back a few decades ago for the tourists. Am I wrong?
Actually, I wish I was in New Orleans right now... this is the perfect weekend, the weekend before the big one. At least I can keep in touch with the important stuff via live webcam. Not as much fun as going to the traditional Mardi Gras parades, though.
