Friends and Favelas

Jubilation!! My first comment. I’m grinning from ear to ear. Someone read my article about favela tours and appreciated it.

Favela Tour

I tried to get my local newspaper to run this story but they passed. I contacted magazines and websites. Pass. Pass. I said what the hell. I’m starting a blog. I knew this was a good article that people would find interesting and someone read it. Julakim not only posted a nice little note but also shared with me two short edgy films about the favela drug culture and Copacabana Beach. This interactivity is more than I could have ever hoped for. So enjoy the films and if any of you all want to share your thoughts on the favelas or global poverty bring it on! This blogging is addictive.

  1. Hi Vicky!

    Thanks for the post. Yeah, the interactivity in the internet is amazing and I am also very impressed to find a person with heart, soul and emotions behind these cold machines we call PC or MAC.

    Could you do me a favor: My name is julakim. I don’t know why jkfree always shows up. It is my old name and I don’t know how to change that.
    But I am

    Thanks a lot,

  2. Thanks, Julakim. That’s awesome. I’m brand new to blogging so I learned alot from you today. I really appreciate it. Glad I caught up with you while you were on holiday. Enjoy your vacation and the rest of the summer.
