A small friendly Pousada / Guest House (I still don't know the difference between the 2!) tucked away in Santa Teresa. Really friendly place with nice little plunge pool, great when it gets hot - and Rio gets very hot! Cracking view of the Santa Teresa hill and into downtown Rio. Tasty breakfast. Only slight downside is that it can be dangerous late at night around there.

It has been great staying with Chris, with his appartment being so close to Copacabana and Iponema beaches. He came with us to the Iguacu Falls and we did enjoy the soakings on the boat ride! He has ...
... to understand why this was allowed to go on. Impoverished as they are though, the favela residents like to live there and consider it home since they don't know any different. They build a community little by little, run businesses, and have a full life that meets their needs and standards. Their health care is non existent and their level of education low. Men in the community are taught trades while women are expected to take care of the home and kids. Only touring ...
