With all the dancing, singing and Brazilian bling, you’d think that everyone in the country would be all over the carnaval festivities. But no. Apparently black is the new white.
It is much more in fashion now to AVOID carnaval and all of its messy fun. At least according to the Brazilians I run with. So today we did not much more than take a walk, chat with family and hang out by the pool. No Samba. No glitz. Tomorrow, we’ll be traveling back to avoid carnaval traffic.
Just call me a super-cool Brazilian.
