Carnival in A Rio Neighborhood

Samba dancer in Rio during carnival

Carnival in Rio gets wild on the beach..


The Sambadrome is ready for people and floats like you see on TV but meanwhile…

Neighborhoods all over Rio make their own party like this that I enjoyed in my first trip to Rio de Janeiro.

All ages, all walks of life joined in to play music together and follow the small parade around the neighborhood. Some people danced, a fair amount drank beer and some people like these charming fellows dressed up “homeless”. I could see where some people might find this offensive but perhaps Carnival is going to extremes so you can carry on the rest of the year.



I think maybe I even started looking Brazilian during that trip…


Get your samba on!
