Is this Mangueira?

One of the first favela's our group was assigned to work in was in the heart of Mangueira. Unfortunately, we faced some difficulties with this NGO so did not end up working here but still managed to explore the community. The community leader 'Thiago' kindly showed us around his home.

As we walked through the favela, a local man spotted us and kindly offered to show us the fantastic view he has of the Maracana stadium from the roof of his ho( not sure if he could see the players that well...)

The favelas truly have the most amazing views of Rio. It's quite bewildering how something so beautiful can come from what is assumed to be so ugly.
