The other day, with a couple from the U.K., we did a graffiti bike tour – except that this became a mega-graffiti tour, thanks to some huge murals the city recently sponsored in Puente Aranda, a gritty industrial neighborhood which normally has very little of outside interest.
The murals, along two streets of warehouses and factories, make for dramatic scenery . However, the local residents walking past didn’t seem to pay any attention to the artwork. Perhaps that’s just because they pass by it every single day.
