Did you ever find yourself in a sketchy situation?
nThe town where we stayed was very similar to the one portrayed in City of God'a lot of favelas and slums. I was robbed a few times, once by a gang of 13-year-old kids. They put one gun to my back, one to my chest. They took my watch and let us go. It was pretty harrowing. I spent the rest of my mission looking over my shoulder. If they’re upset, they’ll kill you.
