The #Boi #Bumba #Folklore #Festival in #Parintins #Amazonas in late #June involves two competing #samba schools ... the #Caprichoso (in blue) and the #Garantido (in red).

The competition between the two is so intense, that Parintins is one of the few places in the world where you will find #Coke logos in blue as well as red!

The #Boi #Bumba #Folklore #Festival in #Parintins #Amazonas is an incredible #musical & theatrical experience in late #June in a 'stadium' called the #Bumbodromo .

It involves two competing #samba schools called Bois ( #Caprichoso in blue and #Garantido in red) who celebrate a resurrected ox (Boi) & must tell the same story on all 3 nights of the festival, but with different scenery and costumes.

#TheTrueSize - size of #Brazil compared to @RussianFederation ('as is' on map and superimposed on #Russia ).

The common #world #map is the #Mercator and it exaggerates the #size of countries nearer the #poles (US, Russia, Europe), while downplaying those near the #equator (e.g. the #African Continent).

Using projections from www.TheTrueSize.com we show the actual comparisons. For actual #area sizes (in sq km) see our world #profile page (click on Places)

#KidsofCarnival .

Interesting insight into the heart of the main samba schools of #Rio de Janeiro and #SaoPaulo .

This documentary will follow the daily lives of these children in the #Samba Schools, the moves, the
swagger of body and will bring testimonies of mothers, fathers and those little samba dancers.

Will be a historical record of those who tomorrow must give new life to #Carnival or #carnavale in Brazil.
