Photo of the week: rainbow favela in Rio

Rainbow favela in rio

Rainbow favela

We took this photo from the cable car that runs across Alemao, one of Rio’s biggest favelas.  We went to the favela for lunch with a girl we were couchsurfing with, and had some awesome vegetarian feijoada at Isabel’s cafe. Seeing the favela from above was fascinating, but most of all we enjoyed meeting some of Alemao’s residents and interviewing them for our blog If I had a Superpower. A trick of the light created the beautiful rainbow colours in the corner.
