There are two types of people in this world. One who has the habit of cribbing about everything and second, who settle down peacefully with whatever they have been provided with. This story, of a Columbian couple, who lives in a sewer without any worldly comforts falls in the latter.
“Home Sweet Home” is a term we use because we find the required comforts inside our houses. But for this couple, it was like “Home Sewer Home”.
Both Were Drug Addicts
Maria Garcia and her husband Miguel Restrepo were both drug addicts 22 years ago and met each other on the streets of Medellin, Colombia.
They were soon on the path of giving up their addiction. So they derived strength from each other and found shelter in a sewer which they converted into a home.
The Sewer is Their Home
Since 22 years, they have been staying in the same place where they found their shelter together.
It was an abandoned sewer, with an area of 65 square feet with a height of 4.5 feet and it was not large enough to walk upright inside.
