There are some times of the year that remind me how very much I live in a South American version of Texas. The annual rodeo (cavalgada) is certainly one of them.
Everyone busts out their cowboy best. Me in my lovely maxi sundress stuck out like a sore thumb (someone could have warned me–Boots!I love boots! And an opportunity to wear boots in Brazil! When does that happen?) I know now. Daisy duke shorts and cowboy boots for the girls. Oversized belt buckles, boots, plaid and/or embroidered shirts for the boys. Ten gallon hats for everyone.
Grab a Skol and a spot on the railing to watch. It’s Rodeo Time, everyone!
