People tend to live in appartments in Zona Sul, the richer part of Rio. Please note that I'm not talking about the favelas here!
I noticed that houses are quite small, and that there are guards at every house or parking. Seriously, there really are guards everywhere! The houses are very well protected (with gates and fences surrounding each house), also very isolated, which guarantees a lot of privacy. It may be a bit sad to be isolated like that, but I guess that's just the way it goes over there.
