Brazil Carnival – Highlights from Sambadrome

Carnival in Brazil is celebrated all over the country, especially in Salvador de Bahia and Rio de Janeiro, however, the most famous visuals from carnival come from the Sambadrome (Sambodromo) stadium here in Rio, where samba schools from all over the city compete in a two day parade to determine a grand carnival champion.

Here are the visual highlights from my two nights spent watching and parading at the Sambadrome in Rio de Janeiro.

This is what Carnival (and Brazil) is all about.
