Happy Easter to all my friends and followers!

I have just received these delightful pictures from my Brazilian friend, Desiree, who has kindly allowed me to share them with you.

Desiree says:
Yesterday I went to a small village called Gramado, distant 160 Km from Porto Alegre. This village is located in the mountains. It was founded by Germans about 150 years ago.  In Gramado there are many chocolate factories, they sell choc all year long. But during the Easter season, the city hall promotes a beautiful party, which lasts 3 weeks.  The village is decorated with Easter bunny and eggs on its main streets and on store’s windows.
It was also nice to admire the chocolate stores windows: they make a competition for the most beautiful window. At the end of the party, people vote on them. The winner is awarded by the city Mayor.

There's a bat flying around!

Thank you Desiree!
