Carnival of Rio

by Eri
(Japan)

Brazil is the country that gives the famous carnival called Carnival for Rio de Janeiro, sexy lady's dancing. This festival began in 1723 and is one of the world's largest shows.

There are schools for samba. The famous samba schools are "Mocidade Independent," "Império Serrano," "Acadèmicos do Salgueiro," "União da Ilha," and "Beija-Flor de Nilópolis."

One samba team is about 2000 to 4000 people and the performance is for 1 hour. The purpose of these schools is to get in the part of the carnival to compete in the contest that is held at the carnival. Each school chooses their own theme to the samba.

This year's carnival was held on February 10th and 11th, 2013 in the night, 9 P.M. to 5 A.M. To get into the carnival, you have to have a ticket to enter the place. The cost of the seats differs for each seat.
