hey!  7th period!

listen to this entire track

Histórias sem Fim was the enredo for 2010 (when i was there)

what does it mean? the story with no end or the endless story.  sambas de enredo simply mean “samba theme.”  Bateria Furiosa is the drumming group for Salgueiro.  their school colors are red and white.

watch this if you are feeling it!
