Hello my name is Sandra and I am a local guide. I work for tips of at least 20,000 Colombian pesos, I am currently studying tourist guide in the Seine and I chose this career because I consider myself passionate about the history that each country brings. My desire is to travel the world and learn about various cultures and stories. I identify myself for being sociable, happy, responsible, outgoing and above all very humble. I love my commune, I don't think I live anywhere other than here and I want to invite all the travelers of the world to come to know our history of the project that was made after the Orion operation, and to transmit to them the teachings left by the graffiti. We will enter the two Museum of the commune, and above all they will meet the best graffiti artist of the commune "Chota 13". They will also get to know another attraction, which is the neon house where they will be able to appreciate the third-dimensional art. Logically, we will enter the Museum of the commune 13 where we will see real photos of our commune, the suffering left by this war and, at the same time, the transformation, and finally we will enter another neighborhood. of the thirteenth commune where 40 percent of those who live there are Afro-descendant due to the displacement that occurred in Colombia.

Un tour super recomendable. Milena nació allí. El conocimiento de su barrio y su testimonio de todo lo allí acontecido es fundamental para entender la historia y la situación actual de Comuna 13.
