And Then There Was Boom

Only 2 of us left on the trip now. Winding down and reflecting on the 3 days spent at Nuevo Circo chilling with what I guess could be called staff, and may just be the coolest place in the entire planet. An unused bullring sitting in the heart of downtown Caracas reclaimed by artists, buskers, street urchines and undisireables, It´s now home to the largest graffitti wall in south america and some of the biggest concerts. Its been defended militantly against police and developpers during the early days of its occupation until Chavez offered his personal guard to be a constant presence, while we were there there was always something going on and everything was done strictly for kicks, never for profit.
