A world-famous tourist event

The Rio de Janeiro Carnival is a world-famous tourist event which brings crowds of Brazilians and foreigners together. the central parade takes place in the Sambodromo, located on Av. Marques de Sapucai, in the neighbourhood Cidade Nova in the north of the city. The samba schools that participate are divided into six categories, and in each category there are six schools. There are four days of parades. Even if you're not a member of an official school, you can dress up and participate in the parades, but this can be exhausting, as most people who do so have trained for a long time. Some tourist companies can help you to register for it, but just watching the spectacle will leave you speechless. The colour, the splendour, the music, the sheer happiness ... you can try to get tickets for a private box, although they are very expensive, but you can go to the Sambodromo for free. Some schools will let you watch them training for the carnival, too, which is almost as spectacular as the parade itself.

Last days of feast

We celebrated the Rio carnival on the penultimate day (21) while in the Sambadrome parade celebrating the last day of the parade. Full dodger, the combine to follow blocos the streets are still drinking beer, strangely cooler than the water ... It is in any case what the Cariocas (Rio residents). Some blocos (tanks) attract more people than the other, but the crowd is always waiting for you behind the chariot hurrying to walk to the rhythm of samba. What to do at least once to understand the significance of the feast of the Brazilian event extraordinary.

Derniers jours de fête

Nous avons fêté le carnaval de Rio l'avant dernier jour (le 21) alors que la parade dans le sambodrome célébrait son dernier jour de défilé. En plein cagnard, la combine pour suivre les blocos dans les rues reste encore de boire de la bière, étrangement plus fraîche que l'eau... C'est en tous cas ce que font les cariocas (habitants de Rio). Certains blocos (chars) attirent plus de monde que d'autre, mais la foule est toujours au rendez-vous se pressant derrière le char pour marcher au rythme de la samba. A faire au moins une fois pour saisir tout le sens de la fête de cet événement brésilien hors norme.
