Bogota is divided into a stratified system of housing. What area of the city you live in will determine what "strata" you are in. The "strata" ranging from 1(low) to 6(high) will define the price you pay for services such as electricity, water, even internet/cable.
The word for today, "shelter," reminded me of this system, and all of the different shelter's that people live in.
