The Colours of Brazil

When I published my post on The Colours of India, I asked you to tell me about the countries that you think of as being the most colourful, and I loved reading all the answers.  A couple of you mentioned Brazil so today I am sharing some of my colourful Brazil images.

Brazil was the country where I started and ended my five month South America trip.  I started at the biggest party in the world; carnival.  There probably isn’t a time when a place can be anymore colourful than during carnival.  The costumes, the decorations, the flags, the posters… everything is vibrant, bright and oh so exciting!  After carnival I spent time in some other parts of Brazil and despite it not being carnival, the colours were still evident everywhere.

When I think of colour in Brazil…

  1. Your pics are wonderful and make your blog name worthy! I haven’t been but the carnival sure would add a lot of excitement and colour to an already festive kind of atmosphere I imagine.
