Simon Bolívar and sunflowers

 

 Simon Bolívar. One of the poorest “barrios” of Santo Domingo named after the liberation hero. Conditions are worse than bad.

The president’s wife is leading a project in the slum area. The most visible change has been paintings of sunflowers on the walls of some houses!
