    Was just in Rio De Janerio , and there the rich live below and the poor live on the hills, same in Peru. Perhaps he's pointing out the difference.

    I don't even see that, they are not good examples of any definition, nor massive divide. The solid homes just look like working class apartments blocks and the valley floor are living in older homes, with less modern methods of construction and material. The rich doesn't look rich nor the poor, poor.

    Did you have the opportunity to go inside a favela?
    Some of the best views overlooking all of Rio with the poorest of poor, except maybe the "businessmen" living inside!

    Communications: The key to understanding.

    Seen the same thing in Caracas and I inquired as to why.
    The answer was that there were no roads to the houses higher up, therefore only the poop people lived there. They would throw their trash out the down side of the house creating triangles of garbage leading away from the house.

    Of course, that's what's known as poor, that's all they can afford!

    Perhaps by zooming in the images will get through the thick rose color glasses, nope, it won't help, helplessly blind...

    Lots of "Old" new construction going on.
