Carnaval 2009, Bahian women

Here is a sampling of the typical   
 dance from Bahia, roda da samba... for Carnaval, the samba schools always have a group of older women dressed in a typical bahian dress, albeit a bit fancier 

since they are dressing for the championship.  They twirls around and around with their beautiful skirts 
and remind me of a whirling top!
Enjoy these fotos from a few of the schools....

All that bootie shaking looks like really good exercise! LOL. Quite an extravaganza! Sounds like a lot more fun than Mardi Gras which
has gotten totally sordid. Now shooting this year. : (
