The yellow and lilac colours of Simpatia É Quase Amor ('Kindness is Almost Love') are inspired by the packaging of Engov, a popular medication in times of a hangover. such as one might just experience during Carnival. A few may already have been endured in fact, but don't miss out on this bloco and its associated riot of colour and streamers alongside Ipanema beach, starting off in Praça General Osório and going all the way to the canal at the start of Leblon.The title might give it away, but its also famous for a bit of the traditional carnival coupling too, so be prepared to fend off or fire up potential suitors, depending on your disposition.
