I was on my way to another bloco/carnival streetparty, when sudden events in the metro made me drive 7 stops past my original destination
I was used to that the Brazilians sing and party in the metro/subway/underground.. But what started here evolved into a full-wagon party, with ordinary people, party heads, transvestites, street/favela style guys and and and….
It was amazing to see all of them together, just having fun and partying… wish we would have that all around the world!

I had the chance to experience Rio’s Carnival at its fullest… Both the big samba school parades, their rehearsals as well as the street parties, or “blocos”
One of the most famous ones is the Bloco da Favorita in São Conrado. It is one of the most expensive suburbs of Rio, with golf clubs etc.. However it is a well right next to one of the biggest favelas of Rio too.. Favela da Rocinha. I did not manage to take photos of this contrast, but it was crazy…
Please go to the gallery in the bottom for all photos!

Some unedited outtakes from my south america trip..
Our trip started in Santiago de Chile.. We spend two days walking around the city, trying to see the local life, not just the tourist sides… Def an interesting city with lots of different sides… What really struck me was the amount of streetdogs in the city, or Chile in general.. BHowever they mostly are wellfed, and looked after, and mostly really friendly… more pictures as soon as i get a laptop…

The one and only Dj Eskei83 celebrated his 30th bday as he should do, by inviting Dj Chris Karns, Dj Hedspin, Dj Kitsune and Dj Dens to get a never before seen Dj setup in Germany.
It was an incredible party and I had the chance to get some time to take pictures of them!
Fooling around never gets old! : )
