GRES Beija-Flor de Nilópolis parade in the Samadrome
After I had the chance to spend 4 hours at the final rehearsal of the Beija-Flor samba school, (click here) , I of course had to take photos of their final parade inside the Sambadrome in Rio. They were one of the top finalists, and are considered as one of the best carnival schools in general. However this year they sadly did not make it to the top 3. Nevertheless it was a great experience, as well due to the fact that the rehearsal was my first real samba experience, and their parade the last one before I flew home at the end of my trip. The brazilians have a saying that once you experienced carnival, you will never let go of it, and I am def looking forward to next year already! 🙂
