Brazil, Rio de Janeiro Carnival
In 2004 I was in Rio de Janeiro to enjoy this amazing city. The highlight was the Carnival Parade at the Sambadrome. As tourists we were allocated stone benches. As I knew about this in advance I borrowed a cushion from the hotel. As you can see, opposite us were comfortable stalls for the VIPs.
All in all it was an exciting experience for us all and anyway we didnt sit for long as the parade passed by us! Our tour took us to Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Peru and Bolivia - the thrill of a lifetime!
