That’s the title of a video (embedded inside) about a Rio slums transportation system that’s actually, well, a ski lift. But it’s a smaller part of a larger article on Brazil’s middle class shopping till they drop – not yet, but… It’s another one in a long line of similar articles, some of which we’ve posted here. We repeat a line we read somewhere: “As good Brazilians, we are rooting for this to happen. However, we do not like the idea of paying for it”.
