Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Hi All,

This past week I spoke to a group of sixth graders about nutrition.  In some way or another we got off on the topic of my travels and one boy asked which country was my favorite.  It is difficult for me to choose between my favorite countries because I liked each country for their distinct variations in culture, scenery, food, and tempo.

One of my favorite things about the port city of Rio de Janeiro is its landscape.  The industrial city of Rio de Janeiro sets off the coast, however in many ways shadows the favela, Rocinha.  Rocinha falls into a valley and is surrounded by the vegetated mountainside.  In the photos below, one can see people going about their daily duties, hard at work.
