Pedro and baby

May 31, 2012

Back in Desemboque, Mexico, I met Pedro. He’s a diver, which is very risky business over there- they stay underwater for hours sending bags of scallop or oysters and have to deal with a lot of rickety equipment. On top of that, they migrate all year long from one place to another in correlation with the fishing seasons. Two years ago, while in Desemboque he left a very beautiful girl pregnant. He only sees his illegal son (he is, of course, married somewhere else) during the scallop season there.
