  1. Now this is totally changing my views on this escalator as other bloggers flag this as “controversial”. I love how it’s so optimistic and significant in augmenting how people see this “other” side of Colombia.

    1. For us seeing the pride of those living in the community of their neighborhood was significant. I also love that even if it is not perfect both sides are making an attempt to improve their city.


  2. I don’t know that I could/would ever go there. I’m a chicken when it comes to this type of environment. Not as adventurous as you. So thank you for sharing this with me. I can feel like I have been there and enjoy the view of the city. BUT, can’t even begin to imagine living on the side of a mountain with houses on top of each other. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Thanks, and thank you for the link. You are right about the steep roads that (as mentioned in your blog) isolated that area, what a difference the electric stairs make


    1. Yes, we felt much safer than Leon. Even the couple of nights we spent at the base of Comuna 13 we were fine. Precaution is required, but it was in Leon too. Best of all it is so much cooler than Leon, the temperature is perfect. We are so glad you enjoy the stories- thank you!
