the highrises and favelas look good.....to bad the sewage disposal in rio is probably a sham for those in the favs and the metro area, a lil lead free paint could spruce up the place.....but of course then it wouldn't be gangsta enough

Incredible density. I'm always amazed at how Latin American cities mix modern architecture with pedestrian-friendly design and active street life. Our US architects and city planners could learn a thing or two from our neighbors.
