In Cologne, they shout “Alaaf”, in Düsseldorf it’s “Helau” – and in Heidelberg and around we say “Hajo” during the carnival season. Here’s an impression from yesterday’s procession, with one of the carnival dignitaries hurling sweets towards the people along the streets.

Today, of course, it’s the wednesday after. And as the old carnival song goes: Am Aschermittwoch ist alles vorbei! (On Ash Wednesday, everything is over.)

  1. Hajo, Heidelberg. You must have had a lot of fun. Now it’s time to wait another year.

  2. Ah magnificent!
