Rio de Janeiro | part2

Discovering the inner city of Rio was fun, the old architecture, lots of interesting graffiti art on walls throughout the city, I couldn’t get clear enough pics of some of the ones I liked cause either the cab was moving or it was just too far, and one just had to keep it moving, so you’ll just have to take my word for it lol! I got to see the notorious favelas (Brazilian slums), kind of hard not to cause they standout and are quite a sight, the way the pile up on top of each other; it’s hard for one to tell if there are any roads between the blocks. Mostly seen scaling the mountainside, the favelas are said to have some of the best views in Rio, made me wonder what Johannesburg would be like if we had the Alex township right where Sandton City is. #randomthought Follow @throughshadedeyes to keep up to date with my travels.
