Rio's samba parade costumes are brilliant, but the floats are works of mad genius.
Several stories high, often with a dozen or more people aboard, and of course covered in all manner of snoof and fuzzle, parade floats are nothing short of mind-boggling.
One or two of these floatstravaganzas would be flabbergasting to behold. But each samba school has half a dozen, and we watched seven or eight schools over the course of the night. As I've said before, after a while we just got tired of saying "wow."
Ranging from the opulent to the absurd, each float has its own share of theatricality.
And this is just the first half. More to come!
