A Colombian man has been living inside a sewer in the city of Medellin, in Colombia, for over 20 years.

Although Miguel Restrepo is legally homeless and could be forced out of the sewer by local authorities at any minute, he describes the cramped space he shares with his wife and dog as a great place to live.

El, cesspools don't really count as being "pools".

Well, he certainly couldn't chastize his kids to "get their minds out of the gutter" despite what they were watching on TV!

Very optimistic of him... I would've found some other place to live...maybe the woods outside of the city.

That needs guts!! May God bless this man and his wife

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.
