this might be the first Halloween that I don’t dress in drag. Usually it’s kind of a cop-out: I’ll forget to plan out the logistics of a thoughtful costume so it wont come to fruition, then I’ll just throw on whatever dresses I have left over from ex girlfriends and go from there. But the truth is, I always have tons of fun. This was a picture from the 2012 carnaval I spent in Rio. Kinda bummed I don’t have any pictures of myself from previous Halloweens.
Last night a friend I haven’t seen in over a year told me the best bloco de carnaval (a moving street party of sorts) in Rio is going to start at 7am today. Since I haven’t seen her in so long, and since I’m vacationing in Rio and want to get a decent carnaval experience, I figured I’d wake up at 6 and see if she sent me any more info. It’s 6am, I crawl out of bed, no info in my inbox. This must have been a practical joke… 7am party? I’m going back to bed.
