Rio's dangerous favelas find peace

Image 18 of 18


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.
