Favela Flavor

At the base of the Rocinha favela in Rio, are a number of shops and street vendors..but there is also a well organized recycling program where bottles, crates and other plastic items are re-used in the community. It is such a colurful environment and during the World Cup there was patriotic bunting everywhere.
