As we get closer to Carnaval the various schools rehearse in the street, or more rarely, in the Sambadromo itself. We missed our chance to see our hometown favorite school Viradouro do a run-through in the Sambadromo. But last weekend we went downtown to see them parade down main street – in all their glory. The folks in green are from Cubango, a sister-school working their way up to the big leagues.
I’ve said it before – there’s nothing like 10,000 Brazilians singing, dancing, and making music all to the same beat. I can’t get enough.
