"Elenildo, a recycled life"

Previous | Home | Next

Living two hours' away by train in the favela Francisco Morato, Elenildo is part of a growing number of commuters, who travel daily to and from central Sao Paulo. Everyday the trains are so packed that, in order to find a seat, he travels first in the opposite direction to the nearest terminal, where the train empties, and then he goes back towards his final destination. All in all, Elenildo spends more than four hours travelling everyday.
