Life is pretty monotonous in winter in Malta, so as soon as there is a special event going on thousands of people meet up at the same place. This was particularly the case a week ago during the big carnival which takes place every year in Valletta and Gozo. I could not miss the opportunity to take photos of the numerous fancy dress and costumes people were wearing for the occasion. Some of them had brilliant outfits on and it was really nice to see children smiling at the idea of being in photos. I liked how cooperative everyone was ; for a few hours, we were not total strangers to each other. It had been a very pleasant day !
