We spent five days in Helton's home town, staying at the one hotel in Oliveira.  Heloisa dances in a School of Samba.  Brazil stops to celebrate Carnival.  Dennis could take no more than 3 days of the celebration.  He stayed in the Hotel for two of the 5 to avoid the excessive drinking.  Chester got into trouble with Ruby for too much partying with the locals until dawn each day.
