Back to Rio

Rio, originally uploaded by Tak from HK.

After 29 hour bus, I am back to Rio. Just stayed here for a couple of days before heading to Sao Paulo to catch my flight to Europe.

Taking the cable car to Sugar Loaf adn have beautiful view of the city.ç

I joined a tour to Favela, the slum area where the poor people live. The area I visited is called Rocinha. In every guidebook, they tell the tourist not to go there because it is very dangerous. If you saw the movie, City of God, the story was happened in Favela.

However, I found that the people here is very friendly and the kids are very nice. Very interesting place to go!

I'm a student from Brazil and I'm working on a research project about favela tours. We're now working on the tourists's perceptions about tourism in Rocinha and were wondering if you would like to articipate as an interviewer. We could send you the questions (about 15) by email and would appreciate it if you could get back to us with any suggestions you find useful.

Thank you for your attention,
