Bogotá Street Scenes #8

IMG_0128One of the most difficult things to take in in Bogotá is the ever present poverty. Especially the indegenous women and their children on Carrerea 7, when they roll into their blankets for the night. A little bit further on a family of campesinos begging every single day in the same spot, father, mother, three boys and their enormous rabbit dressed in an old white t-shirt. It’s usually  peasant families that migrate to the cities in serach of a better life, income, and education for their children that end up as beggars on the street. No social security, or any kind of social net to catch them.  Lucky us.
