Time flows. There are times when we try to swim against the flow, then we see we are in the same place or flowing backwards together with time. I met many people in Rio de Janeiro who cannot swim, people not only born to their fate but with no chance of getting ahead, studying, perhaps acquiring a diploma, or even of raising their children. So they are stuck in day to day subsistence, at any price. Stealing, drugs, prostitution... The poor neighbourhoods or Favel Barrios, as the Brazilians call them, are on the hillsides. Tin sheds with corrugated slate roofs, on stilts or at best on cement foundations. Blacks, Latin-Americans, Brazilians, together in one neighbourhood. A state within a state. With its own market, church, elementary school, its own football field and its own laws. It was like looking in on a normal „quiet" South American morning where children grow up amongst teenagers gathering in gangs and trying out their guns and various weapons on the street. All this coupled with a mixture of strange smells: the smell of the sewer, of rubbish or of hashish. I found no secondary school, library, cultural centre or playground in Rocinho. There is some foreign aid, but it is no more than a drop in the ocean. There are more and larger favelas all the time. It seems to me the children have no hope of a future. All this in a city where the Atlantic ocean washes the sands of the world's largest beach, a city that contains not only Sugarloaf Mountain, but a national park. Light and shade at the same time and in the same place.
