Carnival is over!

So, carnival is over in Rio, but festivities continue until Sunday in Salvador and other northeastern cities in Brazil. In Rio's samba parade, Beija-Flor was the winner, but Mangueira, last year's winner, came in as a very close second. But what am I saying - gotta go get some sleep. See you all here in 2004!

Ai, que saudades tenho da Bahia...
Ai, se eu ouvisse o que mamãe dizia...

Obrigado, meufilho, de um mero amador! :)

Samba Paulista was also a beleza this year, with the advantage that you didn't need the army in the streets! Gaviões da Fiel , the bloco of the Corinthians football club, took top honors. "Eu sou o rei dessa folia / Pra delírio da fiel!"
