This last week the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro has been taking place. It is the greatest party on the planet earth, but naturally it is virtually ignored by self absorbed Americans who think the U.S. is the center of the universe.
The world famous festival is held before Lent every year and considered the biggest carnival in the world with two million people per day on the streets.
The first festivals of Rio date back to 1723.
The typical Rio carnival parade is filled with revelers, floats and adornments from numerous samba school which are located in Rio. There are more than 200 samba schools, divided into 5 leagues/ divisions.
