Here is a short video captured on the last evening of the Fasnacht in Lucerne, the Monsterkorso. I did not find a good spot, so what you see is the area where the musicians started. They are not really playing music yet, but you will get an idea of the atmosphere.When I went to work the next morning, I passed through the same street and at 5:45 in the morning there were still people there drinking and singing. We had a temperature of -1.There is a (slang) saying in Germany "Es friert im dicksten Rock, der Säufer und der Hurenbock" but that was obviously not true for those "monsters".Use this free podcast to learn to speak German. http://german-podcast.blogspot.com
