"Like a true nature's child we were born. Born to be wild. We can climb so high. I never wanna die."

Curicica, Jacarepagua, Rio de Janeiro. 


I was walking around in my neighborhood, as I see these boys playing with their kite. Kite fighting is a very popular activity for children, teenagers and even young adults, particularly boys from poorer areas. I was observing them, until they discovered me and my camera. After curious questions who I am and what I am doing here, it was my time to ask. About the activity they are doing and how they see life, especially in a favela. The answers they gave me was clear and very grown up. "We want better education and we definitely don't want shootings."

Nothing to add.
