The assignments I did Saturday and Tuesday might seem to be related. Saturday was the Cultural Cannibals Carnaval at the Jazz Kitchen (triumphal return!). The party celebrated the culture Brazil has built around Mardi Gras and the syncretism that helped make it possible for people from Europe, Africa, and South America to form that culture over hundreds of years. Most definitely appropriate for the time of year.

Tuesday was... Well, it was on the day of Mardi Gras. Otherwise, there's no connection. The event was Ghost the Musical at Old National Centre, and I'm sorry to admit it, but I had never heard of the movie Ghost before. My mom set me straight beforehand, so I knew what to look for in the 15 minutes I had at the top of the show to take pictures.

So, no connection here, just two sets of photos. Enjoy! I'm gonna get back to studying chemical reaction mechanisms and how neurons work.

I rented a 70-200 from BorrowLenses.com for the Super Bowl before I got my own. I liked them; I think you will, too.
