A doll with a gruesome image is used to decorate the tomb of a little girl at the Central Cemetery of Xela . Gifts like dolls, balls or toy cars are left at the niches of children or young people at the cemetery of this highland city.

This is the last post by our contributor Enrique Hernandez Avila. Today, he is going to Europe to live there.

The Kiosk

A nice shot of the Kiosk from Enrique Hernandez. So this monument is a tribute to composer, Rafael Alvarez, the composer of the national hymn, for the 100 year of his birth. And it was built in 1958. So when you take a break from your daily rush and sit there, you are actually sitting on stones that are 52 years old. It’s kinda impressive to know.
