Sandra outside Chico and Alaide's, a beautiful little boutique bar where they serve appetisers and icy cold Chopp. If you ever go to Rio, you must visit this place.  It's worth it.  It's in the beachside suburb opf Leblon, next to Ipanema.  Look them up on the web (www.chicoealaide.com.br/).

Our favourite food!  Appetisers (in this case, Choquinho de camarão - a King Prawn cooked in a light batter) washed down with a few cold Chopps (pronouced Choppy), a lite draught beer served icy cold!  Yum!

One of the most spectacular floats.  Yes, that's a real water fountain with a Samba dancer in the centre of it!  Check out the pianists suspended in mid air (and for the guys, a couple of topless dancers!!)
