#21. Partying at the Cadiz Carnival

Carnival in Cadiz is one of the most popular carnivals in Spain. What makes it different is the use of humour. It is well known for the street performancers called chirigotas. Their music and lyrics use sarcasm, irony and mockery to comment on the current political situation.

The carnival lasts for two weeks every year. During the final weekend people dress in colourful costumes and go out to the town to celebrate.

We joined them as well. And together with us were our friends who were on their hitchhiking trip around Europe.
