Tatiana Coelho (l.) and Rute Honrado, both from Portugal, chat with school children in the favela they now call home. Both women came to Brazil a year ago because of all the job opportunities and because of the weak economy back home. Coelho is an artist and Honrado a freelance architect. More and more foreigners, or expats, are moving into favelas.
