Douglas, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

2012

Douglas, 9, lives with his parents, his brother and his sister Thanyá in Alemão. We asked him our questions after Thanyá went to find him to show him the gringos. He was shy but he agreed to answer some questions.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

To be able to freeze things would be really cool.

Describe your perfect day

A day where I could swim and skate all the time.

Where is your favourite place in the world?

At this point Douglas pointed to the opposite hill and the favela next to his own.

What do you love most in life?

The cable car.

The Alemão cable car opened in July 2011 and connects the favelas of Alemão in Rio de Janeiro. It’s the world’s longest cable car. Residents of the favelas can get two free rides on the cable car every day.
