Carnival!

Carnival just started in Rio and the samba schools have been marching. And where do they march? In the Sambadrome, that's where! What other venue has a name as cool -- and apt -- as the Sambadrome? (Or, if you prefer, the Sambódromo.) And designed by monster centenarian of Brazilian architecture Oscar Niemeyer, natch.

No, but I've been wearing my giant parrot costume around the house.

I sense Iowa City's comparatively low Carnival destination ranking is about to change.
