Photo journal: Life in a Caracas barrio

The stairs that lead to the otherwise inaccessible parts of the barrio have been built by the residents.

They are often steep, uneven and in bad condition. For older people, children and disabled people, especially for those whose homes are away from the road, it is often hard to get around the barrio.

Furniture, building materials and food have to be carried up the many staircases that lead to the hilltops.
