AP PHOTOS: Hard life, smiles, in abandoned Rio building

In this Sept. 10, 2017 photo, children slide on a puddle near trash as they play in a squatter building that used to house the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) in the Mangueira slum of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Toddlers roam in the abandoned building where mounds of trash create pockets of stench. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
