One of the greatest vacations I ever had was attending Mardi Gras in Germany… Frechen to be exact.  What a great time we had!!
 
Although it is cold as blazes in Germany compared to Rio or even New Orleans at Mardi Gras time, it warms my heart just to think about what fun it was!
 
Was it that we were young?  Was it that we spent it with family … but in such a foreign environment?  Was it the all out madness of Mardi Gras or Fasching as they call it?  Or was it just one of those memories that could never be duplicated??  Maybe a little bit of all?!?

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place".
