One year after the another, it was again time for the craziest party on this planet: the Brazilian carnival! This year, I have spent the pre-carnival in Sao Paulo and moved on to Rio de Janeiro for the real and pure carnival madness. I was accompanied by my friend David and on my birthday, I could also meet my German friends Rebekka, Melanie and Sebastian, so I had a great time turning 31. We've celebrated on the streets of Lapa and went to the bar at the Caipihostel.
The other days, we have spent at random blocos around this stunning city and enjoyed the Brazilian way of life. On top, we have visited Cristo Redentor for the second time (to do at least some sightseeing) and went for a walk along Copacabana and Ipanema. During our time in Rio, we stayed in Santa Teresa, which is centrally located in Rio, though we were in need of using Uber quite often. The blocos were crazy - here, you will find some of my favorite pictures of the so called »Beatles Bloco« (Bloco Do Sargento Pimenta) Enjoy!
