Burnout: The Dogman of Medellin
After Bogota the Brothers Stone landed in Gonzo's hometown of Medellin.
Quick stop at the Gonzalez family compound.
Sitting room, fully stocked giraffewise.
Laundry, garden ... this place has everything!
Yep, it's awesome at the top.
The SOTYs - they're just like us! Their sisters wash their hair ...
O' Mama! Todo esto es para ti.
Over to the local.
Some sections more challenging than others.
Even though it says 'Wolny' I'd swear that was a Sammy Baca mural. Right?
Later, on the Technicolor streets.
Our first sighting of Dogman. Wouldn't be the last.
And just when things really started getting interesting mango security arrived with Dogman backup.
She was a sweetheart, but the dog wasn't having it.
It got funnier and funnier.
Right after this, the attack dog got so riled up by the little dog on the leash that he started humping his handler's leg (not shown.) Made the whole trip worth it, actually.
Spider fans, everywhere.
Our driver, always half annoyed.
Flat bar in Pablo Escabar's old neighborhood.
This was to pop over. I know, off sides.
And then the night demo!
Bring your new tattoo, if you got one.
In the dark, basically.
But it was El Fantasma who dove recklessly down the darkest rails of them all.
The crowd responded in kind. Enveloping him in a snake of tank tops.
Boy meets world, I suppose.
