She’s known in Vidigal as Tia (Aunt in Portuguese) Rosa. When I spoke to her she said even though she doesn’t have anything against foreigners moving to the favela she said bluntly they are the main reason why rental prices in the area have skyrocketed. She makes a fuss every time she goes to the local supermarket and prices are always higher. “They say I’m a troublemaker but I just know my rights.”
