The carnival begins in the ’60s. Only a few hundred people come. It grows bigger every year. This year is its 50th. Two million people come. The weather is nice. Everybody has a good time.
There are 9,000 police officers at the carnival. They protect the people. They try a face recognition technology. This technology can find “bad” people.
Difficult words: district (a part of a city), take place (happen), face recognition (recognise a face – to know who somebody is).
