2016 Rio Olympics: Rio's kite runners
As dusk descends on a cemetery in one of Rio de Janeiro's northern slums, four young men stand on top of a wall vault of tombs and watch their kites flutter in the breeze. Across the graveyard's dusty expanse, some 20 others are doing the same in hopes of catching the wind. Some 40 billion reais has been spent on projects for Rio to host South America's first Olympic Games, which kick off on Aug. 5. But for those who live in the slums of the sprawling metropolis of roughly 12 million people, there are few public spaces for sports or recreation. The cemetery lies in the midst of the Vila Operaria slum, where tightly packed red-brick buildings cascade down the hillside. REUTERS/Nacho Doce SEARCH "RIO KITES" FOR THIS STORY.
