Two opposites here in Rio have been experienced consistently. 1) The speed at which the bus drivers race the city's streets. The bus guys must be betting to see who can charge through their routes the quickest...without stopping until they really have to. People can't afford to wait on the curb because the busses won't stop.
2) The time spent in lines - from waiting for a delicious fruit drink such as acai to just wanting to get on the elevator. This picture doesn't show the 20 other people are finishing the line to the left, and the fact that 25 people must have fit into that little lift.
