Street Party Thrown Adjacent to Rio’s Red Light District

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – JANUARY 05: A waste picker carries a bag of collected recyclables past a street party thrown one block away from Rio’s main red light district, Vila Mimosa, on January 5, 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Waste pickers in Brazil perform a significant role in the country’s recycling efforts. Organizers Wobble and Manie Dansante said they threw the party in order to deliver fresh music and briefly occupy a different part of the city while exposing party goers from other areas to a new neighborhood which often receives a bad reputation.
