Nova Friburgo, two years later...

I recently had the opportunity to visit a suburb here in Nova Friburgo - Rio de Janeiro which was devastated by the landslides on the 12th of January of 2011. Despite the fact that this suburb is some 2 - 3 km from the centre of the city, as you can see from these photos that I took, it seems that little or nothing has been done in the intervening timespan, and the vast majority of the residents have been forced find other accomodation elsewhere.

It is truly a tragedy.
