Gringos at Dois Irmãos
After class the students caught a bus from the bus station near the school to the bottom of vidigal, a neighbourhood in the south of Rio de Janiero. We walked through the narrow streets of vidigal to the start of the hike, enjoying the beautiful scenery on the way up. The hike was challenging but made the view at the top even more satisfying. For me it was the most impressive view of Rio de Janiero.

Getting to know all of Rio de Janeiro is one of RioLIVE!‘s goals, so, yesterday we went hiking with our gringos at Dois Irmãos. To start, nothing better than walking through Vidigal favela, seeing Rio on many different aspects. The students asked many questions about the favelas in Rio de Janeiro.
Soon after we got to the trail, and our hike started. Since some students walked faster than others, we split into two groups. Not even the heat could put us down, and we managed to finish the hike and enjoy the amazing view.
