Kite Fight

13th April 2018 by Will Stewart

Soltar pipas is the sport of choice in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, but you might understand it better as kite fighting. Dizzying views of the favela from the rooftops, as young boys fight it out against men old enough to know better. A story about something you don’t know is always entertaining, but I especially like the community centred, well meaning spirit in which people participate in the game. In a place where people typically don’t own much, anyone can play.
