How's that for a big nose!
To celebrate 25 years of Comic Relief, three of our blogging parents - Annie from Mammasaurus, Tanya from Mummy Barrow and Penny from Alexander Residence - have been invited to Ghana to see the difference the money has made to progress in Africa. You can read about what they witnessed on each blog and also on their website, #TeamHonk.
For Tara's Gallery this week, in celebration of all the good work that's been done, and to support our friends who return home today, the theme is Noses. So I thought I'd pick the biggest nose I could find (and what a satisfying 'pick' that was).
The big conk belongs to a character on a carnival float in Nice which we visited on a trip to the south of France in 2009. Their annual carnival is a spectacular event held in February each year. There are parades in the daytime and at night: crowds fill the street armed with cans of silly string to squirt all over each other. The floats are huge. To get an idea of the scale, see if you can spot the person with the green wig poking out from the puppet's armpit.
