Wealthy Rio de Janeiro Residents Living in the Slums

Posted: Sep. 27th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
A Rio de Janeiro Favela

Not only do rising income levels in Rio de Janeiro mean that some already living in the slums are breaking through their current economic brackets, but the slums are also drawing the attention of those who are already making a decent living. Hopefully this leads to an improvement of these areas as a whole.

Location, location, location…

The slums of Rio de Janeiro have the best view of Brazil’s Marvelous City. They get the view of the hills, the orange back lit of Sugarloaf mountain with its tourist filled cable cars, and of course the moonlit beaches of Copacabana and Leblon, or Ipanema and Leme depending on which side of the hills  your brick two bedroom is built on.

The population of those living in those homes nestled old “third world” style in the hills of Rio number over a million.
