Favela tour was fab
Aug 2019 • Couples
Salete took us round her favela which she had lived in for 40 years. Everyone was really friendly. The favela has its own funicular to get to the top, and a few stops on the way up. The people all seemed content, it was very community oriented and there were lots of projects (adult education for free to learn many different languages) there were clubs for the kids in percussion, theatre, obviously football, music and even a gardening project. There was even a running track to keep fit. Yes the properties were close together, but very colourful. They had made the most of what they had - and all the cats were extremely well looked after - and fat!
