First impressions of Brazil, this video shows 20 industrious ‘workers’ on the streets of Rio.
Rio is much more upmarket than Sao Paulo, the first major city I visited when I was in Brazil.
I found Sao Paulo run down.
The only reason people weren’t interested in robbing me was I didn’t have any money.
With the advent of the mobile phone, we have this kind of footage.
Said to have been shot over a period of a ‘few hours’.
If I were going to Rio, I’d go to Ipenema rather than downtown, as this is the kind of thing you can expect happening.
Here’s the video.
