Carnival Floats, Rio MG_9297

One cannot visit Rio and not getting a feel for what the Brazilian Carnival represents.  A tour of one of the top Samba Schools in the city was appropriate and I got to learn what made the Samba and Carnival icons of Brazilian national identity.

Unknown to many, the truck driver when the float is fully assembled is unable to see the  path he needs to follow at the Sambadrome.  Instinct plays a decisive role.
