Tis The Season… For SAMBA!!!

You may or may not be aware that “Carnaval” (or Carnival to us English speakers) is about to kick off in Brazil this week. Now Brazil is host to probably the largest Carnaval celebration in the region with 24-hour parties that don’t stop for days. In an amazing coalescence of partying and technology, Google has decided to bring the festival to the masses via a live channel on YouTube!!!

In a very cool show of support, for the third year in a row by the way, Google is bringing a series of live channels that will let you get in on the action as a spectator. Having only experienced Carnaval in Portugal I guarantee that I will be dipping in and out of the action to keep tabs on the festivities.
