A right Rio ramble

Posted: June 3, 2011 in Brazil
This is the Favela (shanty town) my hostel is in and yes this is the poor end of town.
As you can see lack of money and space has meant the actually have built this shanty town up the side of a mountain!
And this is the rich end of town… rather snice
Looking back from the posh end you can actually see the Favela nestled into the mountain. It is less than a couple of miles away but the people live in completely different worlds 😦
