Carnival Starts In Rio



Carnival season has started in Brazil and that means scantily clad women wearing giant feathers. We don’t know if ladies in carnival costumes is a fetish, but if not it should be. It takes most of  the year to build the outfits these dancers wear. They all have to be made by hand, presumably by some old ladies that probably wore similar outfits in their day. Carnival marks the beginning of the Lenten season, when people abstain in remembrance of Christ’s death. What that has to do with half-naked women dancing on giant floats we’re not sure. Perhaps it’s an obscure theological point we missed in Sunday school. Still, it is the most popular event in all of South America. We’ve never been to Brazil’s carnival, but we should go while we can still dance a samba without breaking a hip.
