While I was traveling through Rio de Janeiro, Brazil I went to an area call Lapa. It is a barrio that is not too far from the beach. An artist from Chile, named Selaron moved to Rio de Janeiro, and decided to make this his home over 30 years ago. He had a passion for art, and decided to make this stair case his master piece. To check out his whole story go to this site:
This stair case has around 200 steps that have been redesigned by this artist. By doing this, he has changed everything in the neighborhood, and brought in tourism, which also brought back the nightlife! Selaron still lives on this stair case, and you will more than likely run into him if you visit the stairs! Enjoy the video!
