And a quote from Peter Muello's <A HREF="http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/ap/20010223/wl/brazil_carnival_1.html" TARGET=_blank>AP article</A>:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>In Recife, another colonial-era gem on the northeastern coast, dancers in ballet slippers and carrying parasols perform the acrobatic frevo, an up-tempo dance that is not for the couch-potato set. Folklore groups also perform the Maracatu, a highly stylized re-enactment of the coronation of the King of the Congo.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
