Subject: Brazil Carnival?
Hello Ziners:

Some friends and I are keen on making a trip to Brazil in 2006 and thought it would be great if we timed our trip to experience the yearly carnival in Rio. Does anyone know the actual dates of the carnival?

Is it late February 2006? Also, has anyone visited during the carnival period? If so, what was your experience being there during that time. Is it too overwhelming, crowded, crazy?
