Tower of David

I think traveling to other countries is good because it broadens one's horizons. Everytime I come home I appreciate what I have here a little more. Here is a story about the world's tallest slum, the Tower of David in Venezuela. The building was abandoned mid-construction with the death of the primary investor David Brillembourg (building was eponymously named), Venezuela plunged into financial crisis where they had to bail out 17 of their banks. 

So some 2000 homeless people moved into the building and called it home.
