Rainbow over Petare in Caracas, Venezuela

In the whole area of Petare, almost 400,000 people live, many of them in areas called "Barrios" in Venezuela, one of them depicted here. These Barrios, similar to the Favelas in Rio de Janeiro, are conformed by thousands of houses built mostly by the people living in them in steep hills.

People living in those areas sometimes face difficult access and due to the lack of urban planning, it is not uncommon to see houses collapsing after heavy rain.
