Multilingual information about carnival in Bonn

With the start of the street carnival, the Office for Integration and Diversity provides multilingual information about the Rhineland tradition and gives tips on netiquette during carnival.

What are "Jecke" and how do you sway properly? The City of Bonn's Integration Office has produced a leaflet to explain the special features of the "fifth season" and provide tips on how to get along. In German, English, French, Kurdish, Dari/Farsi, Arabic, Turkish, Albanian and Ukrainian, the Office for Integration and Diversity reminds people to treat each other with respect.  Even if kissing on the cheek is part of carnival, everyone involved must agree to it. Sexual advances are not permitted. The following always applies: No means no!

It also mentions the special days of carnival and explains why the carnival revelers storm town halls.
