“Bloco da Lama” (‘Mud Block’) Carnival in Brazil


Revelers participate in the traditional Bloco da Lama (Mud block) carnival in Parati, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, on February 9, 2013. The event, which was begun by two men in a playful manner in 1986, has now become a traditional carnival in which participants disguised as primitives with rags, lianas or skulls and bones, dive in the mud.
