"The announcement to bring the 2016 Olympics to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has brought about big changes in the area’s slums, or favelas. The police have been working with special forces commandos to regain control of these heavy trafficking areas. The commandos move in to clear it out and the police come in and set up base. They are also bringing in health care and electricity to these areas. The residents are happy to see these changes and the traffickers are on the run. Positive things are happening in Brazil.

Just this past week they took over one of Rio’s largest slums and also arrested one of the most wanted drug traffickers in the process. Perhaps the most surprising part of this story was a policeman turning down a 6 figure bribe. Now that is progress. Everything appears to be on the way up for Brazil. They are making all of the changes necessary to be taken seriously by the outside world. With electricity being brought into the slums that were once untouched, this would be a wonderful time to invest in Brazil’s infrastructure. "
