Painted and dress up as the native Guarani Indians I walk 100km from the 2200m high mountains of the Parque Nacional da Serra dos Órgãos to the beach of Ipanema. I pass remote mountain scenery, the jungles, bustling suburbs, highways, until I finally arrive in the midst of the Carnival of Rio de Janeiro. My path takes me as Pale face (Cara Pálita) from nature to civilization and into the midst of the social structures of Brazil, which manifest themselves also in the „blocos“, the carnival rides.
