Photos of the Day: February 13, 2015

Revelers dressed as nuns perform during the “Carmelitas” carnival parade in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Friday, Feb. 13, 2015. Carmelitas is a band started in 1990 by a group of friends who gathered for soccer and drinks just outside a Carmelite convent. Jokes about the possibility of nuns escaping to join the party gave rise to the band, which parades twice: once at the beginning of Carnival, when the nuns escape the convent to join the fun, and then on the last day, when they return to their cloistered existence.
