Colombian City Gets Giant, Outdoor Escalator

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Officials in Colombia's second-largest city on Monday inaugurated a giant, outdoor escalator for residents of one of its poorest neighborhoods.

Comuna 13 residents came out to celebrate and study the $6.7 million escalator which officials say will shorten the 35-minute hike on foot up the hillside to six minutes. Use of the escalator is free.
"This is a dream come true," homemaker Olga Holguin told RCN television.
 I personally  think this is a very good project, do you think so?
