A big shout out to our gal in Rio, Rachel of Rachel's Rantings in Rio, for sharing this! We just had to re-post it. Carnaval has just wrapped up, and it's timely to take a few minutes to appreciate the stupendous beauty of Rio de Janeiro and the mind-boggling effort (and the results that effort produce) of the annual competition at the Sambodrome. The effects employed by the film makers force you to recalibrate your perceptions every few seconds, and to truly appreciate the magnitude of what you're seeing. Enjoy!
