I am starting to really feel like a local, as carnaval is rolling in and I already have my costume idea. After going to a costume party dressed as the Little Red Riding Hood (as last seen in 1991), I decided I need a more adult version – I think I’m gonna go for the sexy policewoman. I can hopefully catch two birds with one stone this way – be dressed for the occasion and scare away potential thieves ( who are plenty during the period).
Carnaval events are already all over town. Samba dancing with a bunch of strangers on the Copacabana broadwalk – this is what a typical pre-carnaval Sunday is all about.
