The Mine

The ‘mine’ is at the centre of Guatemala City, only a few kilometres from the government offices; you have to walk on a mountain edge to get there. It’s called the mine because people try to find metal in the rubbish – sometimes they find gold, silver. Some prefer it to a normal job. They have no boss, no rules, they go when they want. It’s open for everyone, 24 hours. And the money is better.
