Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro is a gigantic city in Brazil.
Dumpster diving and other freegan possibilities
- If you are looking for free fruit and vegetables, the Ceasa (truck depot) at Iraja is a meeting point where trucks from the farms meet smaller trucks to take produce to the supermarkets and food markets throughout the city. Lots of good food is wasted in the process of moving stock. It is also a good place to hitch rides to all over the country. The Ceasa is located in Iraja with a station of the same name on Metro Line 2. (Last checked: November 2010)
