The Adelaide Carnevale is an annual celeberation of culture and traditions of the Italian community in Adelaide. This year it was held at the Wayville Showgrounds.  Admission before 11:00am was free on Sunday so Merkel and Myrtle went along to see what it was all about with special interest in the Italian food and beverages. There were only sweet treats there for breakfast although the smells of food being prepared suggested that lunch was going to be wonderful feast. The displays of around 50 shiny Ferrari's and to a lesser extent the Fiat Bambino's were impressive.

There were plenty of espresso machines at the different food tents at Carnevale. Merkel got his hot chocolate from the ANFE tent. ANFE is the "Associazione Nazionale Famiglie degli Emigrati" which translates to "National Association of Migrant Families". The hot chocolate was served in a paper cup and was topped with a white froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The taste was rich and chocolaty. The cost was three dollars.
