Cariocas know how to throw a party like nobody else. You will feel you are more than a guest, but part of the biger picture. Don't forget to bring your flowers!
Brazil's ethnic, cultural and social diversity is never more evident than at events like Carnival and New Year's. It may be hard for a foreigner to understand that a Brazilian is more likely to pick on you because you support a different soccer team, than because your skin color or accent is slightly different.

Unless you have a very professional equipment your photos of the fireworks will not capture the magic of the event. Bring a disposable instead so you don't have to carry the weight along, and take snapshots of the people around you.
Coming alone does not mean you will stay by yourself. When the clock strikes midnight, the fireworks start popping. Cariocas wish Happy New Year to everybody around them, whether they are friends, family, or complete strangers. Do not be surprised if you get a kiss or two! Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com.

The gay beach kiosk is across from Copacabana Palace Hotel, and the owners often greet customers in drag. Trans-people are pretty much part of the scene.
