Carnival parade

A carnival reveler in a wolf costume rides a tricycle with banner which reads "Wulff (German President Christian Wulff) and 7 Zentis sponsor" during a carnival parade in Berlin. Carnival processions in Germany are held immediately before the period of Lent, with revellers dressing up in fantasy costumes, dancing in the streets and mocking politicians and other people in the public sphere.Reuters photo
