Thanks to Luis Barreto for the photo - check out his professional site or his Instagram @luisbarretophotos, his photos are unreal.
This time round I was going to see them and I was so glad I did.
It was absolutely amazing. The colour and the murals and the innovation and everything just goes to show that you only need to put in a little bit of investment and time to reap big rewards. Obviously not everything is completely hunkydory, even now, but when you heard stories of what it was like then and see how it is now, the difference is huge.
I was inspired and snappy-happy when I got to wander around Comuna 13 thanks to a tour organised on Couchsurfing (it may have changed but there are still people who embody the Couchsurfing spirit) that it pushed me to finally enter into the foray of vlogging. It helps when you have such a fascinating subject matter. So, sit back and relax, for once, I will let the pictures (and my fine self) do the talking.
Have you been to Comuna 13? Have you done a neighbourhood tour before?
