Regular readers of the blog know how fond we are of the praia do Forno in Arraial do Cabo, one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil (we wrote a blog post on it: The most beautiful beach in Brazil?).
You are also aware of the problem of favelização in Arraial do Cabo, chaotic urban development and environmental crime. We now have evidence that things are moving at a much speedier pace that we could have possibly imagined. The favela on top of the Praia do Forno has begun its descent onto the beach.
Felipe Terra and symbolizes the end of yet another Brazilian paradise. I’m thinking of changing the cover of my Brazil beaches book.
