John and Ariana: A Homeless Love Affair

You might have walked past them passed out on a sidewalk in central Bogotá, near the Plaza las Nieves. You very well may have veered away from them, because they reeked of the paste they consume and the garbage they dig thru for food.

But you probably didn't suspect that John and Ariana have something very special: a passionate love. The couple have been together for 13 years, living on the street and addicted to various drugs - as well as each other.

That means they've been together for more than half of their lives - which is much more than many other, more sane and unaddicted couples, who live indoors, buy their food in stores and suffer no mental illnesses, can say.
