Trindade in Brazil – Mud Fight Time!
Trindade, Brazil. Looks like a fun place to me. Especially if you like a Mud Fight!
I haven’t been to Trindade myself. But one of my other travel addicted friends has (ironically, his name is Anthony as well).
He passed on a photo and a video about Trinade to me, so I’d thought I’d share this pretty cool place with you.
From what I’ve seen, the Trindade region of Brazil looks like a beach paradise. Trindade is located on the border of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo and is looks like one of those great places where you can just chill out for a while.
And also have a Mud Fight if you feel like it.
If you are around at Carnival time at Trindade, you can visit the nearby Paraty region for the Bloco de Lama festival. The way this festival works is that participants in this festival have a mud fight, and then perform a samba dance through the streets to worship spirits of the dead.
Here is an example of the mud fight. It looks like a scene out of a horror movie!
I’m a bit wary of covering myself in mud. I did this kind of thing in Turkey a few years back during a midnight booze cruise out to some island where there was a mud bath. Unfortunately, the mud was laden with sulphur and I smelt like I walking fart for weeks.
But anyway, here is a video Anthony produced for Lonely Planet TV about the Trindade region.
Check it out, it looks like a lot of fun!
Thanks for making me have itchy feet so now that I want to go to Trindade, Brazil!
