“It's all about meeting different people.”

His name is Fernando, a rag-picker. I met him in Rio, Brasil. I walked across him every morning when I was heading to the marina in the last 2 weeks. I was a bit scared at the begining, but we started to say hello to each other after a few days.

He aksed me if I could take a photo of him in front of the church. When the photo was done, he invited me to see how he sell his stuff to make his living, he wanted to show me the Rio in his eyes. 

It was dark and scary. I was a bit worried about walking into this street with my expensive camera. He turned his head around and said "Tudo bom." It means "Everything will be fine" in portuguese. 

That's another view of Rio.
