A suggested video for you:

I want to share this video I watched earlier tonight. When I initially clicked it, it was because I was interested in the Favela in the well known city of Rio De Janeiro and the vlogger has popped up before as a recommendation.

I got through about 10 minutes and it became clear that the video was about to showcase a day in the life of a vendor on the local beach. I am sharing because it was extremely well delivered and gets across a lot of important information which people should be aware of. It is also a little saddening. I am sorry, but I feel like this kind of journalism is the best. You won’t see any national news or tv channel doing this. The most they do is a documentary which will likely focus on danger, death, guns, drugs, violence and prositution.

If you watch this and think that having decent clothing and a mobile make you well off, and that there is no sympathy to be had, think again. The prices are different in south America, the goods are different and a lot are fake brands, which means poorer quality. Having a phone now is easy given the wide and varying amounts of makes and prices.

It felt like watching more than an hour of film, and the video just goes over. I think you will be enthralled by how interesting these types of vlogs are. I enjoy a lot of foreign youtube movies, by travelers. Mostly because it makes me appreciative of my own life and keeps me motivated.

  1. Really enjoyed watching this. As you say, an excellent depiction of life in this area of Brazil. Easy, but, uncomfortable viewing. Thank you for sharing, not something I would ever normally see.
