Brazil - 5 weeeks to Carnival
Samba Schools in Sao Paulo on the avenue. No, they are not displaced. It is only that the technical rehearsals have already started for them.
This means Carnival 2010 is at hand. All Samba Schools went to the Sambodromo (called Avenue by Samba people) last Saturday (Jan/09) for an official rehearsal.
This is done so they can check the time of the parade, the size of the allegory carts and so on.
In the video bellow you will see/taste a bit of three different Samba Schools: Rosas de Ouro, Gavioes da Fiel and Unidos do Peruche.
