On my way home...

I'd been wandering about the Candelaria all day trying to catch an insight of this "dangerous" place according to some people; the quarter has always been considered a "no-go place" due to its high level of robberies and violent assaults. However, I find it a enchanting place full of colonial buildings lined up on the highest area of the city and surrounded by extremely poor neighbourhoods. Since there are few residents in this area, the streets appear ghostly empty at night. Only the so-called "recicladores" (people who search in the bins) populate the corners and tiny squares of La Candelaria.

  1. Juan,

    These look terrific. I would like some for our walls!

    Alfie misses you.
