Photographer's Note

This is a traditional party where people dress like country people. It's called "June Party" and it heappens all over the Country (180 million people). From babies to old people, everybody dresses colorful clothes and paints mustaches at male faces, pink blush with few black dots on female faces.

On northeast states, commemorations lasts more than a month. Every year a city is elected to be the capital of this "Festa Junina" (June Party)and they receive tourists from all over the country during this period.

Popcorn, candies, hot dogs, "quentão" (hot drink with cachaça) and a lot of flags. Even a fake marriage where a man has to marry his pregnant girlfriend. Behind them, her father hands a rifle to guarantee the marriage and her honor.

Well... and the Grenn and Yellow are brasilian colours, as we are Penta-Champions, ahead for the Hexa!!!

Brasil! Brasil! Brasil!
