You know you're in Rocinha when....

So I'm in a van riding up the hill to get back over to where I live from Rocinha, the favela where I volunteer, and a motorcycle comes by with a guy on back holding onto the driver.....and dragging 20-foot rebar behind him. Just dragging on the ground. Sparks and everything. And nobody in the van said anything. That's when you know you're in Rocinha.
