    Background: February in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,.....and once again it is carnival time -- the big annual event in which thousands from all over the city take part after weeks of preparations.

    This year about a score of teams from different districts entered their colourful dancing, tableaux, each with a theme of their own, and with their own expensive and striking, home-made costumes. To the rhythms of guitars and other instruments, the different teams danced their way through the crowds and past the judge's stand.

    In spite of heavy rain this year, the carnival was as wild as ever, and as usual there were prizes for the best of the fantastic "tableaux vivants". The rain was not allowed to interfere. Dancing and merrymaking, and the exciting South American carnival music, continued until early next day.
