The largest drum school in Brazil, Mangueira, which means two things, the trunk of a mango tree,
and a garden hose, the school is named after Mangueira Hill (Morro da Mangueira).
Above where some of the masters, it sounded like a choo-choo train flying through your chest.

Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro

The Maracanã is the largest stadium on this side of the planet. It can fit almost 190,000 fans.
When it's a packed house, the concrete shakes.

This was one of the most emotional games I've ever attended, the fans acted like their lives depended on it.
Flamengo made the first goal, and everyone on the Vasco side gasped like they just watched their mother die,
and then became solemn and quiet. Soon after, the drummers broke the silence chanting that they won't be intimidated.
Just before the break, Vasco scored their first goal, and the crowd erupted into mayhem,
jumping up and down and hugging each other like they had won the lottery.
