Recife is a large agglomerate of cities that became one city of its own to make things easier. Things aren't that easy, however. The city is divided by a long wall that separates the east coast from the west. Inequality is rampant and only those lucky enough to be born on the east get to live in comfort. Those on the west end up having to live with high crime, inequality and uncertainty. The city is divided by 15 more-or-less autonomous regions that were the previous cities that "came together". For the past 15 years, the division has been in effect, and its consequences are clearly visible. In a country still in development, having such a large city's society being separated could only mean disparaging differences.
This City Journal will tell the stories of people living in both sides of Recife. A lot needs to be built, a lot needs to be written, but slowly and surely I will come here with Recife's progress.
I hope you like this idea and whatever I build.
