Glittering Lucerne Fasnacht, End Of Winter In Switzerland

Every year, towards the end of winter, Carnival (Fasnacht) breaks out in the streets, alleyways and squares of the old town in Lucerne. This is a glittering outdoor party, where chaos and merriness reign and nothing is as it normally is. Strange characters in fantastic masks and costumes make their way through the alleyways, while carnival bands (Guggenmusigen) blow their instruments in joyful cacophony and thousands of bizarrely clad people sing and dance away the winter.
We were lucky enough to join such a  big carnival in Switzerland on the second day (15 Feb 2010) we reached at Lucerne. I  love Switzerland, the peoples were great and friendly not like some other European countries, don't fond of Asian peoples so much. Switzerland is beautiful and peaceful country, that's definitely no doubt and uncontroversial I suppose. I had took plenty of photos of those beautiful faces, friendly smiles, fancy masks and bizarre costumes, yet seem to be not enough for me to narrate and convey my genuine glittering mood and feelings at that moment and kinda environment, so you gotta experience for yourself, you won't be regret trust me! ^^

We both love Switzerland, cold in weather but warm in heart...the peoples were so friendly, amiable and cordial, me and my hubby both could feel the passion of the peoples and the carnival..
