For those going to Recife and Olinda’s Carnival, here’s a sneek preview. The traditional group Virgins Abraça Brasil, made up of men dressed as women, took over Olinda’s Bairro Novo last Sunday in a pre-Carnival parade. It started out rather calmly with a costume contest, but it later looked as if it were already Carnival. For 2.5 km along the coast, nine trio elétricos (including ones with Claudia Leitte and Banda Eva) took over and commanded the 400,000 strong crowd. If you want to get a look at it as it was happening, check out this video.
