My experience at the Sambadrome was amazing, an incredible opportunity, one I felt no need to repeat this year. Though I love dancing, I hate being in the sun and heat in huge groups of people, especially drunk ones. I have a very vivid imagination. First of all, nudity is not omnipresent at Carnaval in Rio. Though a number of women in the parade at the Sambadrome wear very little clothing, the rest of the participants wear elaborate, heavy costumes, and those are the dancers and musicians that make up the bulk of the parade.
