Samba till you drop

Today was a big day. Somehow we managed to go from this:

wall-to-wall crazies in the street at Cinelândia

to this:

chilling out at a neighborhood lanchonete

to this:

chilling out at a neighborhood lanchonete
Mangueira Samba School performs at Rio Scala Ball

high-voltage old-school samba, into the wee hours

this dude loves his job

We made some new friends along the way...

new friends from Sri Lanka
...like this delightful couple from Sri Lanka
(seated next to The Guy Who Had a Bit Too Much Day)

saucy cariocas
...and these saucy cariocas who taught us to samba till the sun came up


Not bad for a day that began by sleeping well past noon. Tomorrow, the Sambodromo parades!

Re: Samba till you drop
While cabo looks awesome, view in rio looks much better... Enjoy, and looking forward to hearing about the (pg-13 ) adventures

Re: Samba till you drop
Cabo sounds a lot more relaxing... this is *definitely* not a sit-on-your-butt-and-relax kinda trip! :)
