Cocaine Traffickers in a Southamerican Slum
Drug Traffickers in the Murder Capital of the World
The New York Post was looking for underground-type stories. While I was in Caracas, Venezuela, I noticed that my moto-taxi driver had "interesting" conversations on the phone under questionable contexts. Just because he had been driving me around for 7 months and I knew he lived in Petare (one of the most dangerous slums in South America) I even asked "Hey Luis, do you know any drug traffickers in your neighborhood?"
Two days after I was interviewing a family of cocaine traffickers for a the New York Post exclusive.
Shot in one afternoon. Edited in 3 days.
