Art, Unauthorized

graffiti (noun) :
unauthorized writing or drawing on a public surface

We recently had our front wall decorated with graffiti. While this is a very common occurrence here in Chile, it raised red flags for our neighbors. They hastened to inform us that having graffiti painted on one's wall is often a means of "marking" a house for a future break-in. Lovely! So Pedro and Owen set about using some anti-graffiti spray to try and remove the offending marks. Who knew that a toothbrush could be so effective? At any rate, Owen thought being a graffiti-remover was great fun!
