Carnival of Venice 2015 costumes, masks

A Bit of History from Wikipedia:
The Carnival of Venice (Italian: Carnevale di Venezia) is an annual festival, held in Venice, Italy. The Carnival ends with the Christian celebration of Lent, forty days before Easter on Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Tuesday or Mardi Gras), the day before Ash Wednesday. The festival is famed for its elaborate masks.

It is said that the Carnival of Venice was started from a victory of the “Serenissima Repubblica” against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico di Treven in the year 1162. In the honor of this victory, the people started to dance and make reunions in San Marco Square. Apparently, this festival started on that period and became official in the Renaissance. In the seventeenth century, the baroque carnival was a way to save the prestigious image of Venice in the world.

Brazil: A Magical Place

220px-Rio_de_Janeiro_Helicoptero_47_Feb_2006As World Cup Soccer is in full swing in Brazil, there is nothing that compares to being there at this moment, or really, anytime!

Brazil is a magical place!

Imagine walking on the beach of Copacabana or Ipanema, standing on the top of Sugarloaf mountain where the Statue of Christ is… absorbing the city of Rio de Janeiro, or having dinner at a local restaurant on a side street. A recent blog from The Huffington Post: Brazilian Foods to Eat During World Cup 2014. “…Brazil’s cuisine is a colorful blend of Portuguese, African and Native American ingredients and influences…”

You must visit Brazil at least once in a lifetime.
