Walking into a favela


  1. mexican made vw golf police car!

  2. Those wall murals look most astonishing. Oh, wait it’s graffiti……..still otimo! I like how there’s an angry lookin’ police officer next to a police car right in front of it!

  3. Wow these pictures are really cool to look at! The favelas look like they would be interesting places to visit and meet the people. I bet the people living there have very interesting stories.

  4. the scenery is so beautiful! these pictures make me want to visit brazil

  5. the scenes are so beautiful!

  6. That was an accident.

  7. The picture of the police is interesting, and the scenery is really cool.

  8. The picture of the police is interesting, and the scenery is pretty cool.

  9. Once again, the pictures are wonderful. The picture with the graffitti really captures how inner city life is similar to inner city life in the U.S. Keep up the good work!

  10. thank you so much for posting pictures so frequently. it’s wonderful to be able to see a little bit of what you guys are seeing every day!

  11. That graffitti was pretty awesome. Is that how you spell graffiti? I LOVED the third to last picture. That little village was perfect. I would love to go there and sketch all that stuff. It doesn’t even look real, man.

  12. I would love to be the person laying on the beach right now considering snow is on the way. 😀 Also, the second picture of graffiti is so cool and colorful. I think Americans should learn that if they want to graffiti to at least make it clever or creative!

  13. I really like the artistic pictures. The beach and skies are really pretty, and the graffiti is super colorful. You can tell they put effort into it.

  14. I really enjoy looking at the pictures you post!
