... to get groceries etc. I'm under no illusion that there are other much grittier favelas, but Santa Marta definitely made a good lasting impression on me - and as a souvenir we bought some artwork of the favela, painted by a local artist to put up in the flat. We would definitely like to visit Brazil again and see more of this awesome country. The Latin way of life is fun, friendly, colourful and a reminder that the simple things in life are what often make us the ...

Hiking the two brothers mountain the following day was perhaps the highlight of Rio. You get a mototaxi up through the pacified favela to the foot of the mountain, and I think my knuckles are still white from it. These guys drive like Ben Cousins when ...
