Revellers flock to Greek town for a floury, colourful carnival

Raymond Liu
The small Greek town of Galaxidi was veiled by clouds of coloured flour on Feb.  19, in an annual tradition to mark Shrove Monday and the end of carnival. Tourists and people from across the country come to Galaxidi, 124 miles  west of Athens, to view or take part in the event, donning goggles and plastic work suits. Hundreds took part in the messy event, where revellers threw handfuls of flour tinted with food coloring at each other for several hours on the town's quay. Credit: Reuters
