Carnaval

Carnaval is a big deal in Brazil, and has rubbed off on the Portuguese at least somewhat. The night before Fat Tuesday is the big party night here, and lots of people hit the streets to drink and show off their costumes. (It’s kind of like Halloween!) Here you see an example of some costumes, though they’re not all that inspired (most commonly just a wig. Go, dude!) We hung out at a place we like called Bacalhoeiro, a “cultural collective” space that has art exhibitions, music, and cultural events. We danced till the wee hours to Samba music, which is very Brazilian, and very Carnavalesque, I’m told.

    What sort of costumes did you and Len don for the occasion?

  2. sue Says:

    We didn’t attempt costumes at all. We actually didn’t even mean to go out dancing, because Len and a bass player friend of ours wanted to play at a jazz club open mike that normally happens on Mondays, but it didn’t happen this week because of Carnival. So we ended up hitting our usual hang-out spot where there happened to be Carnival festivities.
