Too sexy for Rio de Janeiro? Would like to feel the latin fever, but you worry you might cause a traffic accident, while crossing Avenida Atlântica in your swimming suit? I know exactly how you feel. But, guess what! There is a place where you can experience true samba frenzy all covered up! Where could that be? In Helsinki, of course! Difficult to believe, huh? Don’t really blame you. I have always thought that samba doesn’t survive below 30 degrees Celsius. But after witnessing the 24th Helsinki Samba Carnaval in the center of the Finnish capital last Saturday, I was convinced that samba is here to stay, and below is the proof, half-covered in feathers.
