Jorge Alabe's carnaval samba tour 2009

Forwarded from Deborah Kogan:

Hello, all,

Here's a reminder if you are thinking about going to Brazil in early
2009--Mestre Jorge Alabe is hosting his "samba tour" in January, taking you
to the samba schools of beautiful Rio to get the real experience up close.
January is a great time to go when the escolas are really getting hot, and
the group tour is a fun and reasonably priced way to do it.

If you are thinking about it, be sure to get in touch with either me or
Jorge Alabe directly. Information is listed below, and on the attached
