Jenn, it is a valley with more than 5 million people.
The view you see is North-East-South. You will see a bit of San Agustin on the extreme right and the East Tower at the center of the image.
Alan, the hills are occupied by the rich and the poor, both love the view. The shanty town is at the least 60 years old. The large buildings in the background are part of an upper middle class neighborhood.

The northern rim of the valley is made up by a chain mountains that belongs to one of the oldest National Parks in Latin America. It is called Parque Nacional El Įvila, and was declared national park in 1958. The highest elevation is Pico Naiguatį with 2.765 m. The mountain had its string of pearls (like we call the clouds that cover the top). Mountain is female noun in Spanish. Here some WikiWisdom for you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_%C3%81vila_National_Park

I will be uploading more of that amazing morning at the heliport on the West Tower. I ALWAYS attach a map to all my pictures so if you are curious about my adventures you will see where I hang out most of the time! Smile

What an amazing contrast, Marian, of wealth and poverty, drama and squalor....and class difference. And,this is a magnificent landscape/cityscape.

Remarkable image. Is that a public park in the centre, with a river, or a road?

So many people in one area. Good for business for many.
It must be an interesting mix of rich and poor in those shanty towns.
