Aquarela da Favela, Recuperada!

I’m muito muito feliz to report that although my drive done died, I was able to retrieve my lost Rio pics with the assistance of a very handy program called Klix. & so, I’m able to offer up after all some impressionistic (i.e., blurry ;) shots of the picturesque favela of Vidigal, a warm, welcoming place — at least that was my (escorted) experience — where some friends and I spent most of last Sunday, drinking small glasses of beer, talking about local theater and social activism, watching kids play soccer in the street, catching breathtaking glimpses of Rio down below, and watching the hill light up as the sun set —

More pics here >>

More words soon —
