... like a town getting together) and it takes 90 minutes for each school to dance from one end to the other of the Sambadrome, in full costume, with floats, singing etc. And can you believe the minute they finish huge it parade they ditch their costumes?! Seems so criminal. Such a shame it rained, but it was still phenomenal. The 2 main cultural things we did in Rio were visiting the main man - Christ... And visiting a Favela (Santa Marta).

After a quick nap on the way down, we jumped in a taxi to a restaurant near our hostel to catch the second half and another defensive masterclass from David Luiz and others.
