Gualeguaychú Carnaval (aka: bouncy body bits)

I spent 6 hours last Saturday night watching near-naked women and men (with great bodies to boot) jumping around in incredible costumes on mind-blowingly intricate stages. 

The energy was electric as the various groups passed through the corsódromo (the runway) and enthusiastically displayed what they’d been working on for the past year.

You can listen here to the music that one of the groups, Papelitos, played during their show, accompanied by the lyrics here.
