Young boy hands over a can of Brahma beer to a consumer on the Ferry to Paquetá and gets paid with a 10 Reais pink bank note.
People feel like home on the ferry to Paquetá. The journey takes from 50 min to 1:15h (depending on how luck you are in catching the new or old ferries). There is a homely atmosphere and a constant sound of people talking to each other mixed with the noise of cans opening.
Feeling thirsty? No problem! Unlike the ferry to Niterói, here people sell food and drinks for consumption during the relatively long trip.
In Brazil it is illegal to sell alcoholic beverages to children younger than 18 years old. But what if it is the children selling it? It is not unusual to see children selling beverages during events in public open spaces – no ID check is needed.
