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.
