There's the carcass of some unspeakable old car at the entrance to Vidigal. But as we pick our way gingerly through the town, flanked by UPP escort and our personal bodyguards, it's apparent that the crime crackdown, heavy-handed or not, is allowing a vibrant community to emerge into what are, quite literally, sunlit uplands. This is a cool place, full of cool, smiling people, who will hopefully be allowed to enjoy their town before it's taken over by the property speculators who are rumoured to be moving in (the view across the Atlantic is an absolute corker).
