    I hope to God they're just sleeping.....because it looks like they have blood on them.
    I don't know if there is more than one pic because I only see the first

    There are 5 pics. I see them, wonder why you only see 1. If you saw the other 4 you would know they were sleeping. Because it was hard to wake them, I suspect they had been sniffing or drinking something.

    As far as location, if you could see the other photos you would know it is within sight of La Roca. The wall is the wall of El Neptuno where I live.

    Sad, I remember my very first visit to Santiago (how I hated Santiago! LOL). My friend and I went through the McDonald's drive thru on Estrella Sadhala. While waiting on our food at the window, a Dominican child was reaching through the bars of the play area with his dirty hand out to one of the children inside begging for food. The little boy inside went to hand him some fries and his mother went over and smacked his hand sending the fries straight to the ground. She's yelling at her son in Spanish about "dirty" kids and picked up the,stray fries and threw them in the trash and then yanked her son away from the bars.
    My friend saw my face because she had already started talking before I put my hand on the car door to get out
    "Ay, Shalena, nooooo!"
    I was outta that car in. NY second, I went to the bars and everybody is watching me because I had slammed the car door and of course, the general look on my face. I saw that woman and screamed "Tu ere una descaraaaaaaaa!" (thats before I actually READ Spanish, and realized that there are "d"s in those words, I learned from DomYorks).
    I asked that boy if he wanted to eat. Then I asked him if he wanted to play. He said "yes" to both. I grabbed his bony little arm and marched himright into that McDonald's and asked for the Supervisor. The supervisor got a good tip that day because I threw rd1000 bill at him and told him "Give this little boy a Happy Meal now and when he leaves, and Ice Cream too, and whatever else he wants! And with this money he has a right to play outside!" The little boy is grinning as the supervisor says "Claaaaaro que si, mi vida!" Then I told him to eat what he wanted, get ice cream, play, and take food home. The mother of the other little boy was staring at me like I had 3 heads as I said to her "Tu no tiene alma, ni corazon..."
    I'll never forget that day, I got back in my friend's car and as soon as I closed the door my eyes were stinging with tears, my friend says "Thats how it is here" as she drove off.....
    I just said "Stupid f*cking b*tch"

    I was soooo mad

    Sorry I missed that, Shalena. Would have made some good photos. But you heart is in the right place. I've seen that in a number of threads.

    But sorry I wasn't there with my camera.
