1- DO NOT PAY MORE THAN R$2 FOR A BEAR ON THE STREET, THEY WILL TRY TO SELL YOU FOR R$3. DON´T PAY, SAY "DOIS REAIS" TWO REAIS.

2- YOU MAY SEE SOME PEOPLE PIING ON THE STREET - DON´T DO IT, YOU MAY GET ARRESTED (other years it was a comun thing, the police is not let that heapend anymore)

3- TAKE SOME KIND OF PLASTIC BAG (ZIPLOCK) TO PROTECT YOUR PHONE/CAMERA... IT´S VERY HOT HERE... YOU´LL NEAD A SHOWER DURING THE BLOCO.

4- BLOCOS TIMING:
- YOU SEE POSTED: Concentração 14h / Saida 16h
Means : Gettering(worm up)14h / Leaves(Starts)16h
Blocos Worm Up usually that about 2h.

5- USE COSTUMES IN EVERY BLOCO... YOU´LL FEAL A LITTLE SHY WHEN YOU LEAVE HOME, BUT YOU FEAL GREAT WHEN YOU GET THERE AND SEE EVERYONE DEASSING CRAZY.

6- TO BUY COSTUMES GO TO "URUGUAIANA SUBWAY STATION" - THERE IS ALOOOT OF STORES AROUND THERE (RUA SENHOR DOS PASSOS OR RUA URUGUAIANA). THERE ARE ALOT OF GOOD THING FOR A VERY GOOD PRICE.

7- IN MY OPINION THE BEST BLOCOS ARE:

- CEU NA TERRA (FULL - LOTS OF COSTUMES)
- BANGALAFUMENGA (BEST SOUND - DON´T MISS IT IF YOU LIKE BRAZILIAN MUSIC - PLAY LOT´S OF OTHER STUFF, NOT ONLY SAMBA)I used to play here.
- ZOOBLOCO (ALL ANIMAL COSTUMES)
- EMPOLGA AS 9
- QUIZOMBA
- CORDÃO DO BOITATÁ
- VOLTA ALICE
- ORQUESTRA VOADORA (METALS - SAXOPHONES, ETC...)

8- WHACH OUT FOR BRAZILIAN GIRLS - GET THE GIRL, BUT DON´T GET IN LOVE... YOU MIGHT END YOU MOVING HERE.

If you liked the tips send me a email rodrigocms@gmail.com telling me about you carnival.

Enjoy...
