Meeting Alex de Oliveira Silva, the carnavalesco, was an absolute goldmine. Alex was a Rei Momo, the King of Carnaval, which is a huge honor that he held for an extraordinary ten years. If meeting someone with his knowledge and experience wasn’t enough, it also turns out that he is an architect!
It’s incredible how where one minute the world feels so big and finding certain information so difficult, then the next so small, as if this connection was meant to be.
