El Trene de muerte  


I took this photo at a wood working shop outside of San Miguel where they create beautiful wood tables. Surrounded by beautiful planks of  unfinished wood lay this forgotten antique paper mache figure. As he lay in an almost fetal position on the train like shaped table with his crudely amputated limbs he bravely tells the story of  el Trene de muerte, or the monster. I could not bring him back with me so this photo will have to do.
