One thought on “Slum Tourism

  1. Awesome well written. I did a “day as a homeless person in Asheville NC, and it was eye opening. I think these type activities are very helpful to the cause of the poor. Your article was very well written.
    Thanks to your article I am going to write my experience on my blog
