Brazil: New Orleans is more dangerous than any Brazilian city

“Though Rio certainly suffers from other forms of criminality, like armed robbery, kidnapping, and a favela drug war, it is actually safer than most people would assume, since the media constantly bombards both foreigners and Cariocas alike with scenes of blood and gore, even though most people go about their everyday lives without incident”. Rachel learns that New Orleans is actually more dangerous than Brazilian cities.

    Hi, I agree with you,sometimes we don’t care about the others cities around the world… just more one mistake of the brazilians citizens. Every time we say that country is the worse on the world but we are not prepared to do something to make that country a better place to live.
