... and the cabby didn't understand my poor Spanish either. When we asked him about our neighbourhood (Estacio) he wobbled his hand in the air and said not to go out at night, this is when we realised that the favelas aren't just in the hills they are everywhere! The cabby told us how near the airport was more dangerous and where to go but I was more interested in the buildings out the window it looks like the city is still being built, with cement smudged walls and tangled phone posts. ...
