Caprichoso Corral

The folklore festival in Parintins is about an ox which was stolen and killed, and then came back to life. The city is actually divided in half, into a red side and a blue side. During the festival, the two sides compete. No red is allowed on the blue side of the city, and since Coca Cola is the main sponsor of the festival, on the blue side the coca cola signs are blue. They say this is the only place in the world you will see a blue coca cola sign.

So bizarre to see a blue coca cola sign, love the description you gave. I like the way you are laying out facing pages for your book. Your album is turning out awesome, TFS!

How interesting about the Coca-Cola sign being on the blue side of town. Isn't it fascinating learning all these things on your trip? I know I'm enjoying your trip, but not half as much as I'm sure you did.
