Last Sunday saw the giant mass of sweaty, jiggling, sambaing humanity that is Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, a must-see bucket list entry for every traveler.
For just a small taste of what it might be like to attend the parade at the Sambadrome Marquês de Sapucaí (capacity 90,000), check out the Daily Mail’s photo collection of 49 colorful photos from the event, some of which I would highly suggest you not view while at work or in the presence of small children (or, for that matter, anyone prone to epilepsy).
And if you really want to get a sense of what it might be like to be there, visit Google Maps which apparently sent one of their video cars down the parade during Carnival, to let you see the route from street level. Click here to samba your way down the parade route.
