Last week was the week of Carnaval (which is the Brazilian Mardi Gras). Carnaval is the biggest fiesta of the whole year. Bagé is super peaceful, so we didn´t have much trouble with Carnaval here. The majority of the people that like to celebrate Carnaval left the city for São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, or other cities that have beachside locations. In São Paulo and Rio they have these gigantic themed parades. It seems pretty cool actually (minus the part where most of the women have next to no clothing on during the parade). Everybody in Bagé just watches these parades on the TV.
Monday all of the internet cafés were closed (because of the holiday) and that´s why I´m writing now.
I love you all!
