I'd be curious where in Colombia Ferguson actually went - I've never been to Bogota, but I've been to Buenos Aires in Argentina, and like most countries in South America, there are large slums but there's also a massive amount of territory with normal middle-class people living normal middle-class lives driving normal middle-class cars. The core looked like any big capital city (but with scarier traffic and more motorcycles) and the suburbs looked like any suburbs but with ceramic roofs and red soil.

It's utterly absurd to think we can learn nothing from cities that we have mentally discarded as "third world".
