Carnival!

Whenever Spring comes around you begin to see signs of carnival, not here in the UK but in South America!  It transports me back to 2010 when I was lucky enough to celebrate my first carnival in Rio de Janeiro.

It was the beginning of my 5 month adventure around the continent…  Street parties start at 7am, yes 7am and last all day long.  People don their best costumes, painted faces and coloured wigs for days on end.

And then of course there is the world class entertainment at The Sambodromo.  Arrive at 9pm and dance until 7am…ImageImageImageImageImage

One of the best travel experiences and something I dreamt about for many years!  Have you been to Carnival?
