Rocinha turning the tables on the economy

In today's newspaper, there's a story that says that Rocinha's economy is growing so much that now 6,000 people from outside the favela have jobs here. I've run into some of them myself, for instance at the gym I work out at.

Also, today I walked across the favela with my Apple MacBook in plain sight and nothing happened. Of course this is what I expected, but it's just so funny compared to how cautious I was when I first got here.
