Spent Saturday night in the Sambodromo watching the Parade of Champions. Last Sunday and Monday nights Rio's 12 best Samba Schools competed to be named the Champion. The results were announced on Wednesday, with each team ranked. Last night the best six recreated their performances. The sixth ranked school kicked off at around 9 p.m. and the Champion, Salgueiro, stepped off at 4:30 a.m.
I didn't see it all, intentionally arriving late but in time to watch the best four.
