favela hotel

A interesting story in the guardian yesterday about the very dubious concept of a favela hotel.
I think I may know this favela as it is behind a building I used to stay in when I first went to Rio and it certainly didn't seem like an ideal tourist destination.

Brazil's president Lula contributes an article to today's Guardian about alternative fuel options being developed in Brazil. Alcohol driven cars have been an option in Brazil for ages now and I've always fancied having one though prices (of the fuel) have rocketed recently making it less attractive to the pocket.
