... the premiere league of the samba schools, with the best 6 schools performing on the Sunday - which is when we went. Our tour guides arranged for a local face painter to come and do our make up and I quickly befriended him as he wants to work in Ibiza and I could give him some contacts. Well lucky us because this also meant he gave us extra special treatment and spent a lot longer on our make up than everyone else! We both had different style head dresses ...

Although there are time slots for going up to avoid overcrowding, it was still really busy and everybody is after the same photo of themselves stood in front of the statue with their arms out so it was impossible to get a good picture.

Tomorrow - downtown! I'm hoping the Library. Lunch with Carolina (maybe Bernardo), and then whatever suits our fancy. I'm hoping the soggy will be finished. Boa Noite from Rio!
