Okay, you should look at places in the south of "São Paulo", or southern states aka Paraná, Santa Catarina or Rio Grande do Sul.
You already know the answer
Some areas and peoples in the cities have a good quality of life (like some EU contries)
Actually, just a small portion of people live in the favelas, about 3% of the population. Of course there are poor places and rich places, but in my opinion the infrastructure is pretty good in most cities, there are places which have less work and places that have more details and all that. But to be honest, is not as bad. Most places are pretty good and infrastructure-wise, 70%+ of the countries have a good infrastructure and everything.
While the places where it truly is Favela (mainly and only in big cities, most cities dont have favelas 95%+) its yeah, pretty bad, no infrastructure, no government, its really bad. People just live there because of the jobs, since is closer to big cities, because the price of living in the favela compared to living in a small city, is pretty similar, but since small cities dont have jobs, they have to live in those shit conditions.
"But out of genuine curiosity can you guys actually explain how bad is the Favela in Brazil relative to other 3rd world countries that have similar extreme poverties like mine?"
It depends on the state tbh. But there's a misconception about the favelas being a place where everybody it's a criminal, a drug abuser, whatever that is. Surely it's not like that, it's waaaaay more about people who just don't have the right opportunities in their life, but they are honest and hard-working people nevertheless.
"Is Brazil where one part is very rich and wealthy and the other parts are extremely poor?"
I'd say there's a big social inequality if you compare some areas of the country, especially those from the Southeast relative to the Northern regions. But it's not exactly like Middle East or Arabic Countries too.
It's a fucked up country, to be honest, but there's some misconceptions as well.
States in north/northeast usually are poorest, in south/southeast were located the richest states. Favelas also differs a lot from each others, there are some favelas that arent that bad but that are others really bad
I live in the capital and yes theres extreme differences between the poor and the rich, its a shame
In terms of quality of life, let's say Brazil is 15% Western European, 30% Eastern European, 40% Average South American, 10% Really Poor, 5% Warzone.
Basically like this, Brazil is the size of Europe and has 200 million people, diverse country, etc;
Some cities feel like Norway and some cities feel like Guatemala. You just need to know where to go.
Only have favelas in big cities. Inequality in these cities is very clear, principally in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, if you have a lot of money, living there is just amazing, but the situation in favelas is deeper than just poverty. Exists a lot prejudice against people who lives there and people and kids are forced to believe that them WONT have a better financial life in the future even with study or believe being blamed for other person be racist against them, who makes they go to drug trafficking or steal, because is the only choice of they have . About financial terms, the most inequality is in regions of the country. I live in the south of Brazil and almost all region have a good infrastructure and almost of the people have a decent life, and because the same situation and denial does not exist (except if you are black, the South is a very racist region) we have opportunities and incentives to grow in our personal life. are the regions that concentration of poverty of the country, and unfortunately are the regions who receive less attention :(. But the beauty part, is a lot of people in these conditions got out and get rich with art, and the culture in those place is just lovely. I said more than you asked, but I hope you get it.
Brasilia (the capital) is a different world compared to the rest of Brazil. People that live in main Brasilia have a great quality of life, but close cities like Ceilandia are pretty dangerous and have a lot of poverty.
Yes, is like that in every big city. I lived 18 years in Rio de Janeiro, city that is known for favelas. There are places in Rio where the quality of life is really good and places that it is really bad. For instance, the South portion of Rio (Ipanema, Copacabana, Leblon) and Barra da Tijuca are really good (and expensive) places to live.
You have mentioned our capital (Brasilia). Brasilia is in the middle of the country and was built for the governmant in 1950, so its mainly inhabited by people that work for the governmant. Politicians earns a huge load of money (much more than needed), so you can mostly see mansions in Brasilia (even tho there are poor parts, but kinda far from the rich neighbourhood).
Kinda. Most big cities like SP and Rio are pretty much 1st world in their wealthier regions but are still pretty poor around the outskirts, brazil is also a pretty unequal country
But for the country as a whole, the south/southeast is a lot more developed than the north and northeast regions, where you'll also find the most violence and etc
social inequality is present all over the world, in brazil it is no different
Where are you from anyway, my friend?
U BAITIN? pretty nice 100+ answeres
i mean you have to tell us where are you from. n stuff. brazil is normal. avg
There are a lot of rich people here.
But there are a lot of poor people too.
The government is obviously composed in majority by the rich, so you can expect that a lot of investment on infrastructure is made in the areas they live.
Brazil is a rich place, part of it that doesnt go to developed countries must end somewhere. LOL
Brazil has many beautiful and rich places and has poverty as well as any other country, answering your question about slums, there is an area where long ago in the abolition of slavery, the poorest people began to concentrate in that region, with little opportunity in life ended up causing a lot of crime in that area and becoming something isolated from the rest of the country.
But apart from that, Brazil is perfect in capitals and natural landscapes, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Curitiba, etc., unfortunately, what spoils our country, has always been and always will be the corrupt government.
What is your country men? Dont need to be afraid to say it
Favelas are no-go zones as they are mostly ruled by heavily armed, inhuman drug traffickers. But it is very unlikely that you'll ever find a person on here who actually knows what it's like to be inside one of those to make a just comparison to other poor parts of the world.
And yes, economic inequality is blatant. So much so that the HDI varies a lot from city to city.
