Alto da Boa Vista is the Rio de Janeiro’s neighborhood where Tijuca’s Forest, the world’s largest forest inside a city, is located. This man is one of the many interesting characters that inhabit in this region, which also attracts the adepts of Afro-descendent religions like Candomblé and Umbanda, due to the several places for ceremonies like waterfalls and rivers.

Location: Alto da Boa Vista, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
