Santa Teresa Training, Rio February

Submitted by Lottie on Fri, 2009-03-27 17:30

I got together with the boys who train capoeira at Atelier favela at largo das letras in Sanata Teresa, Rio. We did an informal session when they told me about their neighborhood in terms of safety and joy. They said there is no risk to them in this place, they have nothing to steal and they know everyone. What they do for joy is ride the tram in wild and wonderful ways which they they then demonstrated.
