It's all about the Carnival Lots of color, feathers and skin.
A group of Samba dancers in San Francisco. There's way too much java on this site so it's a bit frenetic at times but the pictures are fabulous and colorful. And there's music!
Includes worldwide listings of samba schools and bands, a glossary, music sources, books, videos, an e-mail list, parade dates, etc. In short everything -- Samba.
School of Samba
A London based school. Pretty good site with lots of info about UK events,
This group is based in Berkeley CA and has lots of great photos on their site. They even have a video on site!
Art of Middle Eastern Dance
A comprehensive site; covers events, troupes, suppliers etc. -- basically every aspect. She includes page after page of links to everyone and everything you might need. Includes humor and photos; a good all around source site.
Covers both the music and dance. Reviews and makes music suggestions. Choice of English or Spanish text.
Very thorough site; includes music, history, partner searches, city guide (where to find some salsa action in your area or wherever you're going), and info on the Salsa dance festival. Also recommended videos. Lots of handy links.

They're still there but were
having a server problem last time I was on.
La Onda Network
Covers the Latin music scene, particularly Tejano. Includes a Selena tribute and the Tejano Journal.
All the latest news, tour dates, releases -- the ultimate Buffett site! Includes the Coconut Telegraph for Parrotheads, lyrics and stories behind the songs, and the Mini-Mart where you can purchase Margaritaville merchandise (Yeeha!).

|Miami Vice Links|
The best "Vice" site I've found. Includes photos, bios, storylines, music info. guest stars, et al.
Miami Vice Web Pages
I don't know what they mean by "first" but it's an interesting site. Good photos, character bios, etc. Be forewarned: very slow loading -- some frames.
||My main interest in
Miami Vice so he goes here!
the Edward James Olmos Information Network is pretty much inactive at this point but still has good background info. But try this new link (below)! A nice site with very current info built by a friend; a semi-unofficial site.
|Other Stuph (just for fun)|
Like hot peppers, hot sauce? Here's da place. An on-line store with a full line of semi-to-really hot sauces, etc. And it's kind of a fun site to look at.
Want to grow your own? These folks can help.
Another place for the hot stuph. Lots of bottled fire and accessories.
|As I find more fun things I want to share I'll add them in here.|
