Life in Rocinha Favela   3 comments

These are the last pictures I’ll post from my trip to Rio de Janeiro in June. This favela, with over 70,000 inhabitants, is now a neighborhood favela, featuring 4 schools and several hospitals. It houses many middle-class Brazilians who like the affordable living within one of South America’s largest metropolises. Click on any picture to see them in slideshow format.

Favela Alleys   1 comment

The labyrinth of alleys in the Rocinho favela are best explored with someone who lives there. It’s easy to get lost. When in doubt, keep going downstairs, as eventually you’ll end up at the bottom of the hill where the favela ends. Click on any image to see them in slideshow format.

World Cup Fever – part 6   2 comments

The Brazilian fans are the best and happiest fans (maybe because their team keeps winning). These were from the Brazil-Cameroon game, caught in the Rio de Janeiro Fan Zone on Copacabana Beach.
