Langstdurende carnaval ter wereld; veertig dagen feest in Uruguay

Members of a comparsa, an Uruguayan carnival group, dance during the Llamadas parade in Montevideo, January 31, 2013. Thousands of people crowd the capital's traditionally black neighborhood as costumed drummers and dancers kick off a street fiesta known as "llamadas" -- Spanish for "calls." The parade originated from the colonial period and started as a parade of slaves on the streets of the city. REUTERS/Andres Stapff (URUGUAY - Tags: ENTERTAINMENT SOCIETY)
