2014 version has begun. The wife is dancing again. The youngest loves going out in her Frozen costumes. There's nothing like the sound of a brazilian bateria in full cry. Watching the samba is simply awesome and the music is so joyful, it's hard not to fall in love with this place every february/march each year.

I thought for sure a post about Carnaval by Viking was about competing cruise lines. I was hoping there was a deal to be had.

This time of year makes me miss New Orleans somethin' fierce.

How do i post a video? The thing that's great about carnaval is that every year, a great bateria passes spontaneously in front of our place. I got one of them on video just now.

On our way now to the "Amor quase simpatia" bloco (block party) in Ipanema now. Should be fun. If someone tells me how, I'll post some video. Mrs Viking is wearing a samba queen outfit and I'm going as myself: a balding gringo with a burgeoning waist line on his fourth beer of the day.

I will post tomorrow. My wife has informed me I get to parade down Sapucai as "apoio" and I'm pretty excited. It really is the greatest show on earth. A bucket list sort of thing to do...the wife is dancing "destaque" for Uniao da Ilha and it is the first time we know of an American as a featured dancer, much less a Mormon girl from Oregon. Should be fun.
