APTOPIX Argentina Carnival
Oriana Alvarez, a member of the murga "Los amantes de La Boca," poses for pictures before participating in carnival celebrations in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013. Argentina’s carnival celebrations may not be as well-known as the ones in neighboring Uruguay and Brazil, but residents of the nation’s capital are equally passionate about their “murgas,” or traditional musical troupes. The murga "Los amantes de La Boca,” or “The Lovers of The Boca” is among the largest, with about 400 members. It’s a reference to the hometown Boca Juniors, among the most popular soccer teams in Argentina and the world. (AP Photo/Natacha Pisarenko)
