Carnaval at the National University!

Painted faces.
Yesterday the 21st., the National University's students celebrated their annual carnaval. There was lots of color, music and crazyness. Naturally, at the always-leftist, always-political National University, the carnaval contained lots of politics, satire and less-than-fond commentaries on capitalism.

No idea why they chose this date, but fun is fun.

Get happy, get sad.

Get happy!

I'm gonna beat an education into you!
...whether you like it or not!

Cartagena bicentennial. 

Colorful costumes from Cartagena. 

Corporations on the attack!

Celebrating the train of capitalism. 

These proud grads can't spell. 

Horn man

Ready to write. The bigger the pencil, the better the grade. 

Pretty maidens. 
Celebrating rapacious capitalism. 

Make more money with Texaco!

A friendly spearman.

This bike tourer found a new friend!

Outside campus, anti-riot police wait in case things boil over. Notice the one smiling at the camera?
