    Favela Rocinha

    December 16, 2016 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Die Favelatour in Rocinha war ein sehr spezielles Erlebnis. Wir bekamen genaue Anweisungen wie wir uns verhalten müssen. Zu Fuss gings den Hügel runter durch die engen Gassen. Fotos durften aus Sicherheitsgründen nur an drei Orten gemacht werden. Immer wieder kreuzten wir Mitglieder der Drogenbanden mit Waffen. Sehr komisches Gefühl aber nur nichts anmerken lassen. Wir stoppten in einer Gallerie, Bäkerei, Schule und dann gabs noch eine Musik und Tanzeinlage.

    The favelatour in Rocinha was a very special experience. We got very clear instructions how to behave. By foot we walked down the narrow alleys. For security reasons we were only allowed to take pictures at three places. A few times members of drug gangs crossed our way with weapons. Very weird feeling, just behave naturally. We stopped in a gallery, bakery, school and even got a dance show.

    Rio de Janeiro - Favela Rocinha

    December 21, 2016 in Brazil ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    We enjoyed a 4h walking tour through the Rocinha favela, the largest favela of Rio and South America. The tour was organized by Alberto, a local english and german speaking tour guide. He lives in a favela and showed us not only a lot of hidden places and small backstreets but also his home and introduced us to lots of local people we met on the way. We didn't feel unsecure at anytime!Read more
