Brasilian Carnival

Carnival parade in São Paulo, Gaviões da Fiel ...

“In the last decades it really turned into a party for tourists mainly because the natives have no money to attend. They put on the show but they don’t participate as much as they would like. A side effect is that the prices are really high. Yesterday I was invited but a place like I was could cost more that 500 US easily…”

frizztext: interesting to read the analysis from giulas41, a blogger in Sao Paulo. Yes, Carnival was changed by the globalisation of boobs, money, noise and crowd chaos…

P.S.:
greetings from Germany, we have today our Carnival in Cologne – not as expensive as in Brazil, but with a mountain of bad music … – and less boobs, because it is cold outside.
