The Caravan moved on

“Die Karawane zieht weiter” (the caravan moves on) is a famous carnival song in Germany. Especially in the area around Cologne carnival is a very important time of the year. Some native bands live entirely on the income they make during the “5th season”. Between Thursday and the following Wednesday public life goes completely crazy, women take over the town hall, shops are closed and pubs are overcrowded, and you’ll see people in fancy dresses literally everywhere …

 

(Yes, you can search for me somewhere on the picture. I was there 🙂 )

That’s the time of the year, when the Rhiva The Club joins in with its Carnival Party, traditionally on Tuesday evening. And after an exhausting week with parties everywhere it is just the kind of farewell you can still handle, with feet on the couch table, chips and wine.

This year it was my job to organize the Rhiva party. Here are some impressions from it:


Die Karavane zieht weiter

Als Düsseldorferin gehört es sich, dass ich von Altweiber bis Rosenmontag auf den Beinen bin 🙂 . Es war wieder einmal ein rauschendes Fest, fand ich. Gut, dass es die Karnevalsparty im Rhiva gibt. So kann ich die diesjährige Session ausklingen lassen ohne meine kaputtgetanzten Füße bewegen zu müssen. Wie jedes Jahr gab es noch einmal ordentlich Stimmung und viel zu lachen am Veilchendienstag. Aber seht selbst, und vielen Dank an alle, die gekommen sind.
