What It Is Like to Live in Rio de Janeiro (31 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       3 Aug 2010       14832       14

We already showed you photos of Rio de Janeiro gangsters taken by Joao de Carvalho. This time we found photographs of everyday life in this city. They were taken by another photographer Urbano Erbiste, who documents the life of local citizens and shows violence, girls, gangs of Rio de Janeiro, etc.

This pics are about only favela...Rio de Janeiro is a large city and have nice places Barra da Tijuca, Copacabana,São Conrado,Ipanema and Leblon...Lots of stuff to do and see. It has a little of everything. It has lush mountains, lush forests, beautiful beaches... Paraty city along the coastline of the state of Rio de Janeiro.Paraty a preserved Portuguese colonial (1500-1822) and Brazilian Imperial (1822-1889) town

europeans are civilized.crime is low,education is great,progress is great,peace eerywhere.
but there are dangeruous places here too,poverty,crime,coruption,but it's very little compared to america or south-american countrys.

anyways i agree these don't show true brasil.these are only pictures from the favellas in the most part,and it's a shitty place to live but the country is great.the only defect of the country is corupt politicians who managed to make 3/4 of the country poor,and a small portion of the population very rich.that's why favelas exist and poverty and crime.

"'but it's very little compared to america or south-american countrys."

You would like to believe so, but data says otherwise.
