Well not so much for creative excellence my photos (cheapo party camera apart from anything else), but thought some of you might like to see what Carnival in Brazil was like. I was in Recife for the first 2 days, and then flew to Salvador. Recife is more like the traditional carnival, everyone partying in the street rather than the huge parties and floats you see in Rio. And Salvador is kind of in between, but with a far more African beat underlying all the music and atmosphere. Recife was by far the best experience, with everyone dressed up in costume.
