Remember, I was currently holding the highest score among all contestants, of 89.9/90. Unfortunately, all scores were dropped, and I wasn't even aware of it.
Unfortunately, after this round of three performances, two people made it to the final, and I wasn't one of them. I was so shocked to find out that our previous scores were dropped, but I guess it was just part of life. My fun time in Brazil was just starting.
Don't go. Click below to have more fun with me.
Some guys came to do a choreography, which introduced me to the current reigning steps in Brazil, how they cross their legs and all.
|Those two small boys were rapping like experts|
We went to the Manguiera Samba Dance club. It was so colourful big, and airy, not the usual tight and choking dance club. At a point, there were nothing less than 500 people there, and it was so organised. The floors were being cleaned every second, drinks being served, etc.

|Samba prince and princess dancing for their queen, lol. |
Unfortunately, I didn't get the woman's picture
After taking this picture, I basically went to sit down cos I was tired. Samba is such an energetic dance, and requires the whole body, most especially continuous shaking of the legs. No wonder Brazilians are not fat, lol. Samba is enough exercise
At about 2.00 am, we were asked if we wanted to return to the hotel with the first set, and I basically jumped out. I was tired mehn
|Some slam poets, and other festival participants|
In one day, I had visited the favelas, participated in slam, and gone to a samba dance club. The only thing I wanted to see was a bed.
Tomorrow is another day
