Very interesting account.
I live in Brazilia, the capital of Brazil. The city is very clean and beautiful, but we do have problems. Last Sunday, a bank in the centre of city was robbed.
Since people (in Brazilia) don't have much, they work in the streets trying to earn some money. Sometimes, there are free music shows (concerts) to watch. Sometimes, there are exhibitions with knives and fire. It´s very beautiful! Most people don´t give donations (money) to the artists and musician. After all, they don´t demand that people contribute (pay), but whenever I have some money, I give what I can to the street vendors.
I hope this helps
