I suggest refugees photos since a long time,but i should have starded with the beginning,i mean the cross of border between te 2 countries.This cross could be possible after many days of walk in the worst conditions.
One day,the NGO,"MSF "most knonwed as "french doctors"has been called to assit refugees crossing te border in clandestinity.
Those passages were forbiden by both countries :Salvador and Honduras because they suspected the passage of guerilleros from FMLN(Farabundo Marti Front for National Liberation),this group wanted to make revolution like in Cuba and Nicaragua a few years ago.In the facts,there were only women,children and old people trying to join the refugees camp.Anyway we just gave theim medical assistance ,before they join after a few hours more walking,the UNO camp.
This shot is not really "TE",but it is so ordinary today to see people looking for better life and crossing borders...
So thanks to Busch for his wall between usa and mexico as Israel and Palestine...i think from the same architect..
It was not necessary to talk us about freedoom about the German wall in Berlin..
Politics or economics refugees,it does not change anything,people will always look for better life.
In WS,you can see te children in the net,of course,nobody knows swimming and the river is rather strong.
The other side is Salvador,with people waiting their turn.

Je pense au contraire de ce qui tu as dit, pour moi cette photo est bien dans l'esprit de TE! Il faut aussi montrer la dure realite dans ces pays la, et tu le fait en plus avec des belles images. Ta vision et experiences de ces endroits enrichissent le site car elles apportes une experience bien differente de celles des touristes en vacances... J'aime le cote journalistic et socialment engage de ces photos. La note aussi est top.

Excellent shot. I definitely believe that this photo belongs to TE since it teaches about the world through photos. This is a nice example of how people live around there. Thanks for sharing. REgards, Mehmet...

What a shame and known story as every where in the world. Inventors still trying another scenarios in different countries. Your frame and workshop version is tells everything with your very informative note. Look at their ages, not more then ten. And look at the risky life. Many thanks for telling truth. Congratulations.

I have to contradict you as seeing this shot made me read about and indeed this is part of the world, so of TE also. A good shot of these refugees in the water with a ftiing colormood.
Well done to present this aspect here to Patrick.
