Carnevale Ambrosiano 2011 on March 12th

First of all, I would like to give my condolences to those who are affected by earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We have been watching the news since last Friday. I was saddened and shocked to see what happened. Really hope there will be no further disaster any time soon. We just send our thoughts and prayers to all the Japanese people… wish you well… may you be comforted. And hope the situation will ease as the time goes by.

These are photographs were taken from the recent event. Carnevale Ambrosiano 2011 is the name of carnival in “Milan, Italy”, which was help on the 12th of March, 2011.
