Science and carnival
It is summer, it is hot, and it is carnival time in Brazil. Samba schools in Rio de Janeiro did their presentation yesterday. One of them, Salgueiro, had as a theme: "Microcosmos, what the eyes don't see the hearth doesn't feel". There were people in costumes representing sperms, white and red blood cells, mechanical ants, frankestein, a car with a fertilized egg and even a car of the dead. You can look for them in the pictures. It won't be easy to spot some of them!
