World Trip: 4. Brazil – Carnaval in Vitoria
Having lost my blog from back then I discovered that a lot of entries still exist on Facebook. So here is what I have recollected:
February 10th, 2010: Carnaval in Vitoria
After a Thursday clubbing night in Vitoria it was finally Carnaval weekend! Late but ultimately we received our costumes. The event started already Friday at around 10pm but we needed to sleep a little bit and then hurried to the venue. It was already very busy with all the samba schools and groups getting prepared for their turns.
Remark 2018: Watch where we are – the proof from Brazilian television:
Each of the Samba schools of the region had one hour to present itself. They composed own music that was played by their own orchestra and dancing by the various groups. Ultimately every school got rated and a winner declared.
Remark 2018: The festivities went on all night until the next noon but at 8 am we were so exhausted we had to go to bed.
