Every February Austin has its own version of the Carnaval festival in Brazil. It’s usually a two night party with samba bands, costumes, cheap beer, and just a great hedonistic time. This year two of my scuba club buddies and I went dressed as trees. We got green body paint and cheap plastic plants which we used to become self proclaimed “Kings of the Forest”. The party itself was a great time, and just getting dressed up at my place was almost as much fun!
