I didn't get a straight answer and I have to question has the UPP worked to alleviate the situation as a whole or has it simply moved the problem away from the favelas near to Rio's core to ensure the global media events come off untarnished? There is certainly still a drugs culture in Rio, its clear with a spot of people watching, we were offered a henna tattoo on the beach alongside "something to help ...
