Did you know that Carnival is actually a Christian festive season? It is supposed to mark the beginning of a long period of abstinence and fasting that leads into Easter . Interesting no? Specially since it's is usually celebrated with half naked girls shaking their goodies on top of crazy looking cars.
I asks myself why the hell Portugal celebrates it the same way as Brazil... It's cold and rainy...!
The venetian carnival is so much classier and magical. Why can't we have that?!
