Favela living - in his own words

Here is a quick follow up on a previous post about life in Rocinha, the largest favela in Rio. I was cleaning up my “favorites” blog list and was reminded that I had a link to a blog produced by Zezinho, a life-long resident of Rocinha who is also a tour guide there. Duh!

Here is a link to his blog where he has several posts that speak directly to life in the favela, the efficacy of favela tours and his personal impressions of the differences between slums and ghettos in the United States and favelas here in Brazil.
