“Gringos” Living in Brazil’s Favelas - 16 Jul 2013
Images of "gringos", the term Brazilians use for any foreigners, leading their lives in Rio de Janeiro’s favelas. Five years after the first "Pacifying Police Units" (UPP) were installed in Rio's favelas to prepare the city to host the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games, many of those slums that are now safer have been appreciating in value, and "gringos" are among the most sought after tenants.

For many gringos with low incomes, the favelas are the only affordable housing option as the rest of Rio's real estate has soared in price over the last decade of economic boom.
