The theme of this year's Carnaval is "the Magic Lantern". Something that they do for Carnaval here that we haven't seen in La Paz is put up huge figures related to Carnaval's theme along the málecon.These are called monigotes, which means "puppets", as far as I can tell. They're a good 25 feet tall, and there's on every quarter of a mile or so along Avenida del Mar.
Lobster season is open now, and several fishemen offered to sell me some lobster as I was walking past the area where they bring their boats in. Since I was going to be walking a while and hadn't brought a cooler with me, I declined, but I think tomorrow we may be having lobster for dinner - yum!
