Push Carros

On the border between Guatemala and El Salvador, people use push carts on tracks to travel back and forth. A resident interviewed by Univision who uses the “push carros” says, “Para nosotros, no hay frontera. [Somos] iguales.” (Translation: “For us, there is no border. We are equals.”) … What a beautiful thought.

  1. Tracy, this is a beautiful clip. I love that story — it’s sad to see how the small town is not as vibrant (economically) as it used to be, but it’s nice to see that the people have made the best of the train tracks.

    Thanks!
