The first time you watch the video, pay special attention to the correct pronunciation of the following words:

Parties everywhere through the streets.
It’s so cool, it’s so awesome. Music, culture, color, drums, food, drinks.
The difference between carnival in Salvador and Rio de Janeiro is that Salvador is an incredibly vibrant public street party with huge blocos and cultural events, while Rio’s main event is the parade in the Sambadrome where spectators watch elaborate floats go by.
Carnival is celebrated all over Brazil in their own unique ways.
So put Brazil’s Carnaval on your bucket list and make it a priority to come and experience the world’s biggest party.
