The rest of the people enjoy the holiday..
Travel, relax, do your hobbies...
A bad thing on the carnival it's that the country stops. People just talk about this, newspapes and television too.
Here we joke that the year starts after carnival hehe..
I think that it's a good time to the foreign visit the country...because it's a very hapiness time. But just take care to the stereotype of the country on this times...Brazil isn't only party, Copacabana, beautiful woman and "caipirinha"
