Carnival in Belgium

Thanks to this day I can now say I have visited Binche, Belgium. 
{which I am not so sure many people can say}

The biggest Carnival celebration in Belgium is said to be in Binche. 
If I must choose one word for these festivities: strange.

In a nutshell - people come out of their homes, wasted drunk, waiting in the cold for hours and hours, for this parade of very bizzare outfitted men moving at the slowest snail-pace you have ever seen, who suddenly start pelting - I mean PELTING - the crowd with oranges ... 
Yes. Seriously.

This will certainly go toward my life goal of saying I have seen it all. 
Happy Carnival everyone!!
