Walk the walk...


Officially Carnaval has started, but tomorrow night will be the highlight for us.
We have been to blocos, which are like big block parties...but oh so much more than neighbors bringing potato salad and cheese dips! (and I do not mean that in a mean way!)
Here they are neighbors that get the money together for a band that sits on top of a huge truck with the biggest speakers that they can fit underneath.  Then as the saying goes...

build it and they will come.
Well, they come by the hundreds if not thousands...a lot of drinking, screaming, singing, whistling and even some peeing in the streets or between two cars works!
The people dress up in everything you can imagine....and look at the girl in this foto 
she thought I was taking her picture!

Well, the big news is that not only are we going to the Sambodromo tomorrow night, but...

WE ARE DRESSING UP IN COSTUMES AND WALKING WITH THE 

Click on the name above to check out the school...I know, it is in Portuguese, but you can look at the pictures.  I am not sure which costume we are wearing...we get it tomorrow!  How excited am I???

Obviously, more to come!

Well, I'm willing to try to ship to Brasil, if you're willing to give me an address...what I'm planning is pretty small...will fit in an envelope. Let me know what you think, or if it would be too hard for you to pay it forward...
