Some Venezuelans took time off for Carnival last week despite continued nationwide anti-government protests that have claimed 21 lives since they started Feb. 12, while the government marked the one-year anniversary of Hugo Chavez's death. Salvadorans went to the polls Sunday to elect a new president after a campaign in which gang violence was one of the main issues, and Colombia held congressional elections under heightened security. Boys gathered for a pickup game of soccer in a Rio de Janeiro slum, while Mexico hosted the FIA WRC Mexico Rally. It was time for the annual Tattoo Show in Argentina, one of the largest events in Latin America dedicated to that art. Brazilians ended their Carnival celebration with exuberant parades at the Sambadrome in Rio, while a Roman Catholic priest in Colombia walked through his church's neighborhood to offer blessings to commuters on Ash Wednesday, the start of the Lent season of prayer and fasting before Easter.
