Who seems to have never been in a village.
Have you ever been to a Brazilian village? There are many small towns with stable prices, conservative people and very unfrequent criminality for our patterns. Until recently, people in the town my grandmother's village is near to would leave their doors unlocked and windows opened, and her village itself knew absolutely no violence until tourists (and migrants seeking to attend them) destroyed that place.
Seriously, if you think I'm saying anything much, stay a month in Petrópolis sleeping with open doors and windows, spotting your phone downtown, walking around at night... Then do the same in Rio for one day.
