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!
Gallery for better view, otherwise HERE the facebook gallery with even more photos 🙂
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…
