Many strange tribes in the street carnival of Paraty, but Bloco da Lama was the most bizarre. Unrecognizable people, filled of mud from head to toe, in some we could see only de white from their eyes and teeth (everything else was gray), others carried props like rags, skulls, vines, flowers and fantasies. After they play in the mangrove of Jabaquara beach they go distributing happiness and creativity through the streets of Paraty to the Historic Center. It was a very funny. experience.
