If I say CARNIVAL! what is the first place that pops into your head?
If you’re like me, it would be Brazil, more specifically Rio de Janeiro. We are currently in the midst of our first Carnival season in Rio. We have experienced the blocos (street parties) in Ipanema and Leblon and are excitedly looking forward to the Sambódromo this weekend. However, our previous home, Portugal, has its own Carnival fun. So for a Throwback Thursday post, I’ve put together stills and video clips from the Carnival parades we attended in Torres Vedras and Loures.
Lots of cross dressers
but wonderful family fun!
