Brief essay on Carnival / Mardi Gras: observing that it is a global experience

When you grow up in Louisiana you may get the impression that New Orleans and Shreveport are at the center of the Mardi Gras experience.
Well, that's not true!

Research the definition of Carnival at wikipedia and look at photos that will back up your reading.

Compose a brief essay on the fact that Carnival is a global experience.
Mention no less than 5 nations on various continents that show this to be true. For each country and celebration, mention a city and describe what a visitor might see or otherwise experience in that celebration.

Give your essay a colorful opening, documentation and a snappy title.
