... as we went past. Very sad places to look at, though I won't presume to judge what it is like to actually live there, people tend to make the most of what they've got in one way or another. Half the buildings look either hand made (which I suppose many of them are) or just incomplete... Huddled closely together, even the streets are narrow & dingy looking. At one point we passed some playing fields where kids were playing soccer or just hanging round, behind it ...

I slammed my left hand onto my iPhone in my pocket and spun my body to release the grip of one of the robbers from my bag.

... wouldīnt be so bad to be a soldier in Brazil, thatīs for sure! After, we took a gondola to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, one of the major tourist spots in Rio. The views were unbeatable! At night, we took a bus to Lapa, one of the neighborhoods near the city center. Every weekend, all the bars in Lapa open and the streets are just a huge party - it looks like Mardi Gras.
