Chapter 83 is one of 84 Chapters of Paul Hodge’s April, 2013 incredible video book “2013 Rio Carnival”. Paul’s book is the first ever video book published on YouTube with 85 chapters and 6+ hours of edited, original videos taken of the greatest party on Earth, Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival 2013 Celebration from February 3 through February 12, 2013.
Chapter 83 of 84 of Paul Hodge’s April, 2013 Video Book “2013 Carnival Rio de Janeiro” chronicles Paul’s amazing February 10, 2013 coverage of downtown street celebrations in Rio’s Centro and Lapa neighborhoods which attracted over 3 million celebrants! Later this evening of February 10th, Paul is covering the all night long finalist Rio Carnival 2013 Samba School Parade Competitions in the Sambadromo from 9:00 pm to 4:30 am the next day, February 11th.
Rio’s Centro neighborhood is the historic and commercial center of the city. The Lapa neighborhood is known for its great nightlife and being the cradle of bohemian Rio. In addition to many people having residences in Centro/Lapa, the largest companies in Brazil have their head offices there, including Petrobras, Electrobras and BNDES. Most of Rio’s museums, performing arts centers, foreign embassies, and land marks are located in Centro/Lapa and most of the city’s great night clubs are located in Lapa. As you can see, while the Centro streets are normally empty on weekends, during Carnival, Centro and Lapa are packed with 3+ million celebrants!
Paul’s Rio Carnival 2013 coverage is truly unique because of its incredible comprehensiveness. Paul not only took amazing videos of Rio’s world renowned 2013 Rio Carnival Samba School Parade Competitions in Rio’s Sambadromo but he also covered the diverse preparatory activities, street parties and celebrations which took place throughout Rio leading up to and during Carnival’s long weekend, February 8th through February 12, 2013.
Paul’s video book is also extremely singular because his videos of Carnival’s famed Samba School Parade Competitions at Rio’s Sambadromo were taken by Paul from the vantage point of highly prized Sambadromo ground level, front row box seats which literally immerse you in the uplifting energy generated from the wonderful music, dance and joyful celebrations! You are placed so close to the celebrants that you will feel that you are actually participating!
