To go along with jj's photo, here's one of mine, of the tufts of rebar that energize the built forms of Rocinha. It's not widely known, but there's a vast commercial marketplace in most squatter communities. The sign at left, cut off in the photo, is advertising a kitchenette apartment for rent. And, of course, there's always coca cola in the favela.
