Carnaval on the way

SO tomorrow Carnival will begin in Brazil. Democratic, crazy, sexy, lusty, funny.. All adjectives can be used for this party that last almost one week. When I was a teenager I used to go to Carnival Balls but that was a long time ago, and I really prefer to stay home, sunbathing and watching the Parade on TV. This Parade happens on Sunday and Monday evenings and goes all night long - there was a time when I watched everything, but nowadays only watch the some of the 12 Samba Schools (one for each Rio de Janeiro's community/districts). It's a beautiful show, well organized and full of incredible special effects and gorgeous hand-made allegories. I was born in Vila Isabel district, but my love is Mangueira Samba Shcool, although every year it's hard to choose the best one.

This afternoon, I'll go to Lucas's school for the Carnival Kids Party. Lucas will be a Batman this year, so I bought a Batman mask to use with his cloak, customized an old tee of his, stitching a Batman logo from another old tee that is already too small, and bermudas. Voila, his costume is ready. He'll have next week off! Lucky boy... We'll go to the movies (maybe to watch Alvin 2 or Astro Boy), play around and enjoy my family, since my sister from Sao Paulo is in town.

Wish you all a great weekend!

Melody wants to come to Carnival and caught a glimpse of the photo on this post. She said we can take an airplane there! The idea of a parade, parties and costumes is too much to resist for most of us isn't it? ;)
