Revistado de novo

Got stopped by the police again today....at least they didn't dig their fingers deep in my pockets like last time.

This is would-be corruption. They just want to see if I have drugs so they can force a bribe.

I was a bit scared because I had a bunch of valuables with me (I'm moving my stuff out of the favela gradually for my impending departure). But I haven't heard many tales of the police simply stealing stuff.

Still it's sad that a) the police assume if a white person with a collared shirt is only there to buy drugs, and b) I've been stopped after taking a cab out of Rocinha 2 out of 7 times.
