Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is not just about ladies wearing feathers and big productions it is also about locals enjoying their time with a little samba and a little revelry.
No festival or concert in the United States prepared me for the crowds of Carnival in Salvador, Brazil.
For over 20 years I’ve been making a pilgrimage to San Francisco’s Carnival Celebration on Memorial Day weekend.
I got to see my “old” samba troupe perform in Seattle a few weeks ago.
I took many photos as I was excited to participate in Carnival this year— that is as a bystander.
