ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, JAN. 14, 2013 AND THEREAFTER - In this Jan. 8, 2013 photo, Andreas Wielend, from Austria, poses for a photo at the entrance of his hostel at the Vidigal slum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Wielend says he bought the lot in late 2009. It was long abandoned and lacked bathroom, kitchen and even doors. But it had a breathtaking view over Rio's concrete jungle and the Atlantic Ocean. The German seller, who had snapped up dozens of properties in Vidigal in 2008, was asking just 20,000 reals, or $10,000. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
