Though we had to wait for around 2 hours for the Brazilian Carnival to finally start; the 15 minutes it lasted was well worth it. But more than so it was great to meet some tweeps in real life.

    i just came back from the same carnival in Batroun, we also had to wait for a really long time, but the problem was that there were so much people, it was annoying…
    oh, and i wasn’t able to take pictures as nice as yours hehe

      There was a swarm of people as well, but thanks to Liliane we were able to reserve a nice spot on the hill near the statue of martyrs and then we pushed through to get some photos :)

      You should also see @toniyammine ‘s photos on facebook, they were made on a pro camera and were amazing !
