6:33 am
his wife her mother was only forty seven but the day is not dominated by sadness. that the day he could have set it up again was up it's a joyous festival it has to be because life is short with the limbs that all that and one day we'll have to go to. see but i'm proud of the life i lead now and i'm happy when people come to my stand to eat tacos and leave satisfied you know for leave to return again soon and there with her. in the evening the smell of incense walking across the graves like a scene and of a rock painting. or and right behind the cemetery wall people are again cooking and eating like they
6:34 am
seem to do everywhere in this country life and death pleasure and pain. they're never far apart in mexico. the following morning victor and his family are back on the street setting up their stand. they've offered their dad now life goes on. a kick. in the lawn with all those monday will be gone but my sons should carry on here and if they do a better job than me all the better. people always need something to eat naturally we're no exception. and. death is part of life in mexico. but as victor would say as long as we're here we might as well eat the best tacos
