DescriptionThe account that the gentleman gives is in relation to the cemetery: our grandparents who are already dead left us inheritance, that is why we come to paint [the cemetery], to decorate it. We are going to die and they will bury us here, that is why we do not neglect it. It is the reason that we are here, our participant says.
