The tour of Santa Marta was enjoyable for several reasons: the smiles and greetings from the folks who live there, the beautiful views and learning about the history and politics of the place. We saw the statue of Michael Jackson and got to do some souvenir shopping. I enjoyed visiting and meeting three generations of a local family. Our guide was a walking encyclopedia and since I am not fluent yet, I did not get 100%, but I did learn a lot from our very enthusiastic guide. He seemed to know personally everyone we passed! This was a fun activity with fellow students and one more opportunity to practice my developing ability to use Portuguese.

Es siempre lindo conocer la ciudad al completo, no solo los barrios ricos de Copacabana e Ipanema. Un buen lugar para visitar para conocer algo de la historia de Río de Janeiro y para ver increíbles vistas es la Favela Santa Marta. El pasado sábado disfrutamos con nuestros estudiantes una tarde soleada en la Favela Santa Marta.
