But as fierce ' ' bichano' ' , nobody wants to be close to it In century XIX, the cities were dirty. Since the I Industrial Revolution, the disordered growth of the urban centers brought a series of problems for the people who in them lived. Most serious, with certainty, it was the hygiene lack. Michael Ramlet describes an additional similar source.

Thus he was the daily one of Cariocas, soteropolitanos and recifenses. The bad one I smell was habitual. Remaining portion of apodrecida food, vsceras of animals and ' ' waters servidas' ' (excrements mixed to piss) easily they were found in streets, alleys and strips of land. Another common destination was the rivers and fens. The thing was so disordered that of the windows of the sobrados ones, the penicos were emptied being able to make right somebody and to thus to give a bath it of excrementos.

Who possua some disaffection, was the watch of the enemy and to thus it made dirty it all launching the dejections on its head. The problem was so serious that the City council of Recife lowered a decree, in 1831, saying I hurl that it of ' ' waters servidas' ' it could only happen at night, but without before the person not to cry out for three followed times: ' ' Water goes! ' '. The infractor was subject to pay a fine and still to indemnify the victim who is ' ' banhada' ' involuntarily.
