RJ — Favela Santa Marta


This was THE Favela I wanted to see. Famous since Micheal Jackson – They don’t care about us, it’s a very nice, colourful and creative favela. I spent a lot of time trying to find someone who lived there who could make me visit and finally went with a guide (you can find his contact at the end of this post).

The State started building it but didn’t finished for unknown reasons. Lots of wall paints where made by the inhabitants. The last Pic is my favorite.

      Yeah they are. I really enjoyed visiting this favela and it’s not even as dangerous as people think actually.
      Thanks 💋
