Fabulous Carnival 2009 Photos

If you have never attended Carnival in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, you really must try it at least once.
There is nothing like it any where in the world. Thousands of people attend from all over the world. The people, food, floats and costumes are the most extravagant spectacles that you will ever see in your life.
Carnaval, as it is spelled in Portuguese, is a four day event that begins on Saturday and ends on Fat Tuesday. Carnival Sunday is seven weeks before Easter Sunday. The first records of carnival date back to 1723 and show no signs of slowing down.
In 1983, Brazil's most prominent architect Niemeyer,was hired to build the Sambodrome, home of the Samba Parade at Carnival. Prior to 1983, make shift bleachers were set up every year. The Governor spared no expense to have the Sambodrome built in just four months and it is absolutely stunning. The Samba Parade is a can't miss event.
It is very safe inside the Sambodrome. Air conditioned taxi service is available to and from the Sambodrome for about $40 each way for upto four passengers. The taxi will take you directly to your sector for easy entry and exit.
