Karneval auf Ramstein: Germans, Americans celebrate fasching
Two men peer out the windows of a bar during fasching, a festival held across Europe, in the city of Ramstein, Germany, Feb. 28, 2017. In the Middle Ages, Karneval gave people a break from the tightly structured class system, as they were able to hide their social background behind imaginative costumes and masks.
