I am a very nasty person, indeed. Ask my friends. Se habla español en el club de los insomnes.

Evil Child with Pet

This evil child is training his parrot Quico in order to attack the people with it. Adorable. At Cololaca, a very small village in west Honduras.

Please, don't vomit on the floor

"Don't vomit on the floor, vomit on the bag"

This enigmatic message was in the bus from San Pedro Sula to Santa Rosa de Copan , in Honduras. When a few minutes later, two very drunk men tried to get the bus, I did suddenly understand. Alcoholism seems to be a serious problem here, sadly.

By the way, it is written "bomit". And there is no bag.

The Banquet

Finally we did it again; our traditional Banquet for the Deads. Luis and los yucatecos spent all Saturday night cooking; in the meantime I put the altar with sugar skulls, flowers, candles, photos of dead people, magic powders, tamales, water, tequila, candies and chocolates, and that funny mexican paper for the special ocassion.

Then, on Sunday afternoon, we received our guests. Our living guests, I mean. They were starving of course, but before they eat, they had to watch the explanation we made with the pictures of the cooking procedure (so many hours cooking! they should know!)

At the end of the day we have had a great success with the food, including papaya as dessert and horchata as beverage. Of course, the Altar still remains for our dead guests, whom visit us these nights in order to take their part...
