||Two more, ready to go! The trickiest part of this costume was figuring
out how to get the shoulder piece on (you had to turn your head sideways,

two US nationals on their first time in Rio. All you need are the
right connections, you know....
|It's hard to believe it took less than 10 minutes for the two ordinary
guys on the first photo to become proud bearers of the colors of
their school, Portela. You may find it even harder if we tell you that
these two typical Cariocas are actually Sydneysiders! Lots of
people say that marching in the Samba Parade is even more fun than
watching... We say you should try both, and make your own decision.
