The Rosinian slums are located on the mountainside of Mount Jesus, facing the beautiful Ipanema Beach, and you can see the Christ Jesus statue of the New Seven Wonders when looking out from the window. Not far from here are high-rise apartments and luxury commercial buildings. Just a stone's throw away from the bustling scene, the view is completely different, constructing a unique style of Rio de Janeiro. It is the archetype of the ghetto in the movie City of God.
Rosinia Slum is a world-famous slum, where millions of Brazilian poor live. Its houses are old and dilapidated, its community environment and security are poor, but there are many beautiful street graffiti, or joint dances. The residents here are painful and happy, and full of hope for life. But be careful not to bring too much money here. Robbery is common here.
The gap between the rich and the poor can only be more felt under the strong contrast. The VS simple wooden shed and the crowded brick houses of high-rise buildings are still very shocking from a distance. There are many graffiti, which are quite interesting and worth seeing.
The main streets of slums are not really dirty, but the amount of sewage rubbish on the ground has increased significantly as it penetrates into the streets and alleys. In general, however, the slums in Rio are far from crumbling and horrible as they are imagined. There are different ways of living in different lives, and there is no need to envy or despise each other. Everywhere you go, feel, experience, don't disturb, don't force... It is suggested to choose a half-day tour project launched by the local regular travel agency, each with about 120 local currency, including hotel shuttle and shuttle and English tour guide. Following a tour guide can ensure absolute safety, especially in Roinha, South America's largest slum, where the government announced several years ago that dangerous elements such as gangsters and drug traffickers have been eliminated. Most places can be photographed (but not close to people). Occasionally, individual tour guides warn that they can not photograph at all and suggest respecting their rules to avoid extraneous complications.
In fact, generally speaking, there will not be scenes that you think you can see in the movies, because the tour guide has no feeling of insecurity, just like visiting a big town, you do not feel poor, you feel like living in a small place in China, those shops, food markets are the same, if you can have local familiar friends slowly climb to the top of the mountain one by one, Feelings are different.
Contrary to Hong Kong, the slums in Rio de Janeiro are built on the hills in the city centre. This colourful area reminds me of the ceramic tile steps, the enthusiasm and artistic atmosphere of a slum in Rio de Janeiro.
Staying in slums for two hours is a bit difficult, mainly because the streets are very narrow and oppressive, the narrowest opposite two people wrong car to side, and the road everywhere urine and stool, the temperature is unpleasant. The tour guide said that the water and electricity were connected in disorder. There were no garbage trucks to clean up the garbage. Only a heavy rain in the rainy season washed the garbage down the hill.
The Rocinha slums are not as bad as they were supposed to be, and they look beautiful because there is no imaginary mess in them. In fact, they are quite clean. Looking at the past, they are all densely packed houses.
Actually, this grotto is on the opposite hill. It's the most beautiful one. It's not so poor. It's all colorful, and it feels like it's between a very crowded house and a house on the hillside.
The Rocinha slum is a very dense and narrow house in a slum mixed with a wife's area, but the house is very colorful.
1. The largest slum in Rio. But it's not the most dangerous slum. 2. It's spectacular from a distance. The colours are beautiful (indicating that they are still rich in graffiti houses). There is no special poverty. And slums are really not all slums. 3. Tourism projects are quite mature. Most people choose 120 mine (240rmb) projects. But I chose 50 thunder (100 rmb) graffiti activities. It's interesting. Beautifying walls is very meaningful.
