The Carnival lasted five days in total, four of them of total madness.
I´m not sure how many people attended, but the city was packed. Cars from Sao Paolo and Rio were parked everywhere, beaches were jammed and the whole place was on party mode.
Every night, the Carnival started around 10:00, to finish around sunrise. Blocos all over the place were leading people in the old town and there were always some drummers getting ready somewhere. People were drinking, dancing, eating, walking, singing non-stop. Meanwhile, everybody was pretty well-behaved.
We had a lot of fun. Most of the time, we just followed blocos in the streets, dancing behind them. Occasionally, we would stop somewhere and watch people´s costums — the people parade is sometimes better than the official parade.
During the day, we relaxed at the beach… or at least, we tried too, until we discovered another original way to celebrate Carnival.
