Who shall dance with me?

A bittersweet scene taken on a happy place. This is Carnival in the streets of Salvador da Bahia, Brazil.

As people pass by singing and dancing, Grandpa goes with the flow and does the same… until some kids get close and spray him with fake snow. And so he starts looking disoriented and all that joy that he was apparently feeling vanishes in a second, as people start looking to him with somehow disapproving looks.

But we think you’re never too old to have fun.

Live and let live!

And the parade goes on…

    I am going to Brazil next year so I hope to participate in Carnival :). I also hope I will be happier than the guy in the photo. He seems to be a bit miserable :)…

      Although for us it was a bittersweet experience, Carnival is indeed a great party and the vibes in the streets are INSANE! Just a little advice: don’t carry a camera or any other valuables… keep it simple and enjoy! :)
