After I covered the protest/demonstration from “Mothers against Fracking” they invited me to cover their handover of an official protest letter to Downing Street Nr.1o, the office of prime minister David Cameron
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…
