Index for Album Carnival-2005c: Bonaire Carnival Closing Parade 2005

Carnival Closing Parade pictures from Kralendijk, Bonaire, West Indies taken on Tuesday, February 8th, 2005. I didn't know before I came down that I would be at an evening Carnival parade. So I hadn't brought down my external flash. But the internal one didn't do so badly. This was a circular parade. So people and floats will reappear in the chronological order here.
