Slum Tourism

Has anyone traveled to a 3rd world country and explored the poorer/dangerous parts of the country? Like slums in Brazil, India, SEA, African countries, etc?

I'm curious how people live in such extreme environments and maybe learn have a new perspective in life.

    Uh yeah when I visit family in central America lol. It's eye opening in the sense that people can absolutely happy with far less, but it's also a crash course in understanding how fricking fortunate you are to have been born in a developed country.

    I feel like a lot of posters on here could benefit from it tbqh, b***hing about not getting laid when shit could absolutely unironically could be worse.

        Idk bro, I wouldn't try it in LATAM at least. Feel like the people in SEA would be more docile. Not to say the people where my family lives are insane but MS13 is still around. El Salvador btw. Might be a different story in South America.

    I lived in a pretty bad neighborhood in Baltimore when I was in college to save on rent. It's arguably the 3rd worst major city in the US behind St Louis and Detroit. We used space-heaters in our bedrooms and let the rest of the house get freezing all winter to avoid paying to refill the old central oil heater. The house next door was a halfway house for recovering drug addicts and it totally burned to the ground the night of my finals when a guy fell asleep with a lit cigarette in his mouth. Someone was shot and killed right in front of our house one night while they were sitting in their car. We had a fried chicken place on the corner where the employees were protected by 3 inch thick bullet proof glass. The glass has multiple bullet holes in it where people tried to rob it anyway and shoot through the glass. I paid $300 a month for rent and shared the 3 bedroom house with 2 attractive girls. Looking back, it wasn't that bad of an experience. No one ever broke in our place and nothing bad really happened to me personally other than my car getting broken into a few times. I did see a homeless person suicide off an overpass onto the freeway below.

    I definitely would have gotten more poon if I had lived in a safer area. Looking back, I should have just worked an extra shift or two a month and lived somewhere nicer. I ended up graduating and moving to a a really nice area of southern California with my girlfriend.

      Nice try but you are practically living in a far better condition than poeple in 3rd world countries.

      Your “stuggles” in the 1st world country aint shit compared to the real slums. Guess you never had to wipe your ass wth a cup of water after your shit, exposed to open sewage the moment you step out of the house, seen a rats nest of electrical wiring on a pole,
      live in a nieghborhood so dense and congested with people of all ages that you can practically hear them through walls, using mosquito coils, storing water in giant drums for showering/cleaning dishes, inefficient garbage disposal systems, crowded public transports, contantly floods when it rains, cats/dogs roam freely in the streets, changing cellphone/SIM on a needed basis, generational debt/slavery and other insane shit just to survive and thrive.

      Its no wonder why immigrants want to move in our country.

        I mean, it wasn't far off. The pipes in Baltimore have so much lead in them that the city put out notices not to drink it. We had feral cats all over the neighborhood. The rats were insane. Our house was so cold in the winter that we didn't have a problem, but you should have seen the size of those frickers outside at night in the summer. The unemployment rate in Baltimore among black men in the city was about 40 percent. It's a pretty fricked up city. Some fun reading for you.

            LOL, I would have gladly, but they both had long term boyfriends. And they also knew that I had a lot of girls coming in and out of the house. I did date some of their friends. We barely saw each other in the house because we were all in school and working full time. And we all stayed out at other people's houses a lot. We couldn't really hang out in the living room all winter because we didn't have heat. Not a lot of bonding time.
            We did have an insane party the last week before we all moved out. We hosted a party for an "alt modeling" website with a bunch of scene chicks. We had kegs, bands playing in the basement and dozens of models in the house. I ended up hooking up with 2 different girls that night. The chick I banged was not so hot though., but good in bed. The house got really wrecked because there were so many people coming in and out and it rained.

            Stay there.

            Believe me, I will. I haven't even visited Maryland once in the years since I moved out here. This is my neighborhood now.

    Yeah. It taught me not to be so materialistic about things that I perceive as necessities, when they're really just a luxury. When you see multi generational families sleeping in the same room they run their business out of on paper thin mats, you realise you don't actually need a lot to get by.

    >slums in Brazil, India, SEA, African countries
    Yes. I am a business-class/4-5 star hotel traveler due to my job.

    However...when in other countries I often take walks through slums to see how others live, what the state of the human race actually is, and (like OP said) gain perspective.

    For example, I've walked through Mother Therea's neighborhood in Calcutta...fricking blew my mind out. Believe it or not, it was encouraging to see one of the most famously miserable places on Earth hustling and striving and improving.

    Another example...was in Kibera in Nairobi this year. Similar...these people just need an opportunity from under a corrupt ass government.

    TLDR; Visiting slums teaches you the human race is in better shape than advertised. People are resilient.

    Disclaimer: I am an American with brown skin that can fit in everywhere outside of Asia in tshirt and jeans. Be careful whitey.
