A Sweet Victory!

For the first time in 74 years, Unidos da Tijuca took the title of Best Samba School at this year's Carnival celebration in Rio. Founded in 1931, Unidos da Tijuca is Rio's third oldest Samba School. Five years ago the beauty of their second place performance (they trailed that year's winner's score by .2 percent) reduced me to tears. This year's performance sure looks like a real stunner!
