Photographer's Note

I took this portrait of old man after his cross of "rio lempa" which was the border between El Salvador and Honduras.He wanted to join the refugees camp to be safe.
After many days of hard walk trough the country fighting against bad nutrition,infections and drowning,a few of theim never arrive at destination.
More problem with the salvadorian army and para military groups that did not want to let "subversive" people go to Honduras.
There were no guerilleros,just old people,women and children.
I liked dignity they always kept in the worst situations.
