To live in Rio de Janeiro is something pretty intense in terms of lessons to learn by your daily scenes. Like all others city in Brasil there is a big gap in between rich and poor.
The difference here is the interaction that everyone has to go through because of the geography where the town was built. Doesn’t matter if you are going to work or having fun you will face a democratic space that is shared by all population!!!
Here in Rio we have this saying: If you have 10 reals … something around 3 pounds … you can go to the beach and spend the day having a lot of fucking fun!!!
