The first minute or so of this video shows some of the preparation that went into the afternoon trip to Skid Row, widely considered the USA's only "third world" city. Backpacks were packed, snacks and breakfast burritos cooked up... It all started at midnight.

At 6am, we drove to Skid Row, Los Angeles, where I spent about two hours talking to the people there, listening to their stories and letting them do all the talking.
