    • Latin America is home to 41 of the 50 most dangerous cities in the world
    • Caracas in Venezuela is now the most violent, according to homicide rate
    • Took the top spot from San Pedro Sula, in Honduras, now in second place
    • Drug trafficking, gang wars, political instability and corruption are blamed
    • U.S. cities St Louis, Baltimore, Detroit and New Orleans are also named



    The 50 most dangerous cities in the world have been named and shamed, and an astonishing 21 of them are in Brazil.

    Latin America features highly in the ranking, released by Mexico’s Citizens’ Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice, as it is home to some 41 of the cities listed.

    Drug trafficking, gang wars, political instability, corruption and poverty are to blame for the high homicide rates across the region, which has just 8 per cent of the world’s population, according to UN data.

    But the list doesn't just include Latin America, with U.S. cities St Louis, Baltimore, Detroit and New Orleans also featuring.

    Between violence, Zika, and pollution, this is going to be interesting.

    my buddy is from cali
    he last went back to visit family a few years ago
    grew up in a nice area-professional parents and shit

    but he says he wouldn't go back--certainly not with his kids
    you really have to be aware of where you are and when you are there at all times

    I've spent time in both Sao Paolo and Rio De Janiero.
    Sao Paolo is effing huge. It's one giant mass of concrete that goes on forever, dotted with vegetation and red soil. It's a neat city, but like Rio, the poverty is prevalent. Where I stayed was in a gated village north of the city called Alphaville. The entire compound was surrounded by 10' walls that had broken glass shards fused into the adobe as a means of preventing thieves from hopping the wall. Machine guns are common at all security points.

    Now Rio, what a shit hole.
    I was at the Copacabana Hotel which is real nice. You could throw a rock and hit 10 beggars from the front door. The police would round up orphans and street kids to keep the touristy areas "nice". Those kids would never be seen again. The hillsides are covered with Favelas. They are ramshackle housing built one on top of the other. Literally acres and acres of slums. And it all drains into the watershed, then to Atlantic.
    I can't fathom how much money got funneled to the IOC in order to get Rio the games.

    I will say this- I've got some killer stories from the nightlife.
