Moving to Santa Marta

Michael Jackson's square at Favela Santa Marta.

Une rencontre authentique. Visitez la favela de Santa Marta. Recus par ses habitants, audela du cliche touristique vous y decouvrirez l habitat de millers de cariocas. La favela peut etre un lieu de protection pour les plus demunis de la grande ville. Elle le fruit du travail de nombreuses generations. Depuis son sommet, la placa Mikel Jackson,le panorama est grandiose. Merci a Diogo de nous avoir propose cette activitee. Un apres-midi inoubliable. J en sorti tres emu. Il me faudra des mois pour assimiler ces images. Un grand merci aussi a Juliana, qui fut notre guide locale. Elle sut realiser la rencontre avec ce nouveau monde.

Visiting locals in a real carioca favela.

Our visit to Favela Santa Marta was so good that even one of our students is thinking about moving to Santa Marta to spend some time. They loved to know its history, the people, their stories and how they live there. Also the stories behind Michael Jackson’s visit in 1996. It was so good that we understood why they felt like moving there.
