Boa Vinda a Brasil!

After years of playing in a brasil-inspired samba band in Sydney, I have finally landed in Brasil during the Carnaval Season to get a real taste of this country.
(21 days, February 2010)

Many surprises came from the trip - the people were beautiful and had an amazing level of integrity and friendliness. They have also surprised me with their level of creativity especially their costumes across the multitude of carnaval activities.

Rio is a gorgeous city - very picturesque with its surrounding mountains and beautiful beaches. Many samba bands in Rio also had trumpets, trombones and saxaphones ! It was hot and muggy with a max heat of 43 degrees celcius. And I was relieved that I wasn't mugged and didn't see any violence at any point during my trip.
